Birthday girl Carla Suarez Navarro upsets Maria Sharapova
06 September, 2018, 04:15 | Author: Judy Cobb
Sharapova, the champion in 2006, had won 23 straight matches under the lights, including her previous three contests this year, but Suarez Navarro, on her 30th birthday, clinched a 6-4 6-3 victory to reach her second quarter-final in NY.
"Just a little too up-and-down", is the way Sharapova described her performance. Twelve months on, that seems significantly less likely.
That, she insists, came when she arrived in the United States with her father - but without her mother - and just $700 in their pockets.
"[I've] established a lot for myself personally, professionally".
"You don't know where you're going to end up. You just have a dream", said Sharapova. "I think that's a lot tougher than being 31 years old and having the opportunity to do whatever I want in my life".
"I am really glad I got the win", said Keys after reaching her third Grand Slam quarter-final of the season.
The No. 20 seed had to work much harder than she had so far in the tournament, where she had won 22 consecutive games leading into Sunday's match.
The five-time Grand Slam champion has not gone past the quarter-finals in her five major appearances since returning from a doping ban in 2017.
Sabalenka, who saved three break points in the final set, flung her racket in dismay after committing a double-fault on match point, handing victory to her 19th-ranked opponent.
But when the NY crowd wished her a happy birthday following her victory over Sharapova on Monday, Suarez Navarro said she hoped to show more of her "character" in the quarter-finals. "She has a great serve and plenty of experience on this court".
Since returning from her drugs ban previous year, Sharapova has made just one quarter-final in five grand slams. Good question. And now she could be set to match up against another American: Serena Williams in the semifinal. Playing her sixth round-16 match in the tournament, Suarez Navarro completed the first win over the former world No.1 since 2014 Montréal. "Those are all the things that I think we all know going into a match-up against someone like Carla".
The tears were also a legacy of the most painful result of her career in NY two years ago when she lost to Keys from 5-1 up in the final set. I've never felt so bad on court.
Earlier, Sharapova misplaced to Suarez-Navarro and left US Open.
Keys has been solid in NY, having dropped a single set through four matches, and turned it up a notch against her 29th-seeded opponent as she lost only 10 points on serve during a 76-minute match in which she was broken once. In that match, Suarez Navarro won the first set 6-3, but Keys rallied to level the match before claiming it in a deciding tiebreak, 3-6 6-3 7-6.
