Serena Williams into U.S. Open quarterfinals for 10th straight time

Colin Kaepernick puts his fist in the air as fans applaud for him during the Serena and Venus Williams match

Serena Williams survived a severe test of her credentials against the hard-hitting Kaia Kanepi on Sunday as she advanced to the quarter-finals of the US Open with a 6-0 4-6 6-3 win.

Because Williams skipped last year's tournament in New York, Pliskova is also the last player to beat the six-time champion in the U.S. Open.

"I want [Olympia] to sleep in the bed with me every night", Williams said.

Kanepi responded brilliantly in the second set by breaking Williams twice before she held serve in the 10th game to level the match.

Williams, 36, took the first set in only 18 minutes as she converted all three break points she earned and did not drop a point on her first serve. Williams continued with the almost flawless tennis she displayed in the third round against her sister Venus in Sunday's first set against Kanepi, the woman who upset the No. 1 player in the world, Simona Halep, on the first day of the tournament.

Williams heads into the second week at Flushing Meadows tracking two milestones: A seventh US Open title would see her break out of a tie with Chris Evert for the Open Era record and also equal Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles.

A matchup with Thiem would be a rematch of the French Open final, won by Nadal, and their first not on clay.

The "humungous task of processing and verification of specified bank notes (SBNs) was successfully achieved", it said. An amount of Rs 107 billion has not yet been received by the RBI after the cash ban, the report said.


Williams will face the 2016 U.S. Open runner-up and No. 8 seed Karolina Pliskova in the quarterfinals on Tuesday after Pliskova defeated Ashleigh Barty.

She said she believes new mothers should be more prepared for the fact that it can take time to recover from childbirth. "I'm just going to try to keep building on that and keep going".

With Halep, number two seed Caroline Wozniacki and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber having already fallen, few major obstacles stand between Williams and a seventh title in NY. She was bumped up to the No. 17 seed at the U.S. Open.

Williams is not longer just a tennis player, but a tennis playing mother.

"(Mertens) beat me two weeks ago so I knew that I had to come here and fight and do my best", Stephens said in.

"In the real world, it takes a while for your body to come back".

The other quarterfinal on the top half of the draw will be defending champion Sloane Stephens of the USA against No. 19 Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia in a rematch from the same round past year. "That's the most important thing to me". She hasn't won since and is trying to avoid going without a Grand Slam for the first year since 2011.
