Serena, Stephens reach US Open quarterfinals

She built on the momentum and was dominant in the first set against Kanepi, which she won 6-0 in just 18 minutes.

Former World No.1 Serena Williams of the United States kept her quest for a 24th Grand Slam title alive, maneuvering past Estonia's Kaia Kanepi, 6-0, 4-6, 6-3, in a fourth-round battle on Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open.

After winning the opening set in just 18 minutes and for the loss of six points, Williams found herself taken to a deciding set for the first time this tournament. She missed her Australian Open title defense, not returning to the tour until March.

Williams finished the first set in just 18 minutes and almost rallied from two breaks down in the second.

Serena Williams overcame Kaia Kanepi in three entertaining and power-packed sets to reach the quarterfinals of the US Open.

Pliskova had arrived in NY practically unknown except to tennis insiders when she beat Williams in the semifinals at Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in 2016.

When she ripped a backhand victor to claim the third set's opening game on Sunday, Williams let out her loudest shout of the day, leaning forward and rocking both arms.
