US Open R16 Preview: Four Slam champions on Super Sunday

Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova rallied to eliminate former world number one Sharapova 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 and book a quarter-final berth against American Sloane Stephens, who ousted Germany's Julia Goerges 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

Pablo Carreno Busta, of Spain, celebrates after winning his match against Denis Shapovalov, of Canada, during the fourth round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017, in NY.

The Russian gave an early indicator of her desire when she won a gutsy point after rushing back and changing hands to return a cross-court volley with a lob in game three. To start her NY stay, she beat second-seeded Simona Halep in the first round and followed through with wins over unseeded Timea Babos in three sets and fellow wild card Sofia Klein in straights.

Sharapova hadn't played in a major tournament since the Australian Open in January 2016, when she tested positive for the newly banned drug meldonium.

The Latvian notched her second straight quarterfinals appearance at the event.

The Danish Caroline Wozniacki, 5th in the world, has she regretted that Sharapova, sacred in NY in 2006, is favored by the organizers, which programmaient all its matches on the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Once again the vast majority of the 23,000-strong crowd in the biggest arena in tennis got behind Sharapova, who needed a wild card to play here following her return this year from a 15-month ban for a drugs offence. "I still think I have a lot of work to do". It was an incredible opportunity.

That's a huge dollop of glamour and eyeball appeal gone from the U.S. Open, a Grand Slam with seriously dim wattage as the injury withdrawal and top seeds fly. On court, she won three good matches. That drew the "car park" response from Sharapova and, at times here, she played as if she had the limo revving up outside and ready to go. "I had big back problems, some muscular problems, all the time getting fit then injured again - I was not happy, so I chose to stop and see how my body reacted".

"There's no doubt that not playing those matches certainly cost me today".

She added: 'I think I allowed the match to become physical.

Sharapova has had to battle in all her matches and it was no surprise to see her run out of steam, hitting 51 unforced errors, as Sevastova clinched victory after two hours and 16 minutes. "I'm very thankful for the opportunity".

And Rublev kept up the pressure on Dimitrov before finally breaking him down 7-5, 7-6 (3), 6-3.

Sevastova comes from Liepaja, the third largest city in Latvia, and her coach, Ronald Schmidt, cut a lonely figure in her box, but proudly wearing a cap that told of his admiration for her home town. "I can be proud of that".

Kvitova's only other trip to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows came in 2015, when she lost at that stage to eventual champion Flavia Pennetta. "You can't replicate that anywhere, especially at a Grand Slam. So".

We know where Sevastova goes from here: a second consecutive US Open quarterfinal.
