Kvitova powers past Muguruza and into US Open quarters

However, the Czech survived three break points in a tense sixth game to remain within touching distance at 4-1, and she brought it back on serve a game later when converting with her first break point.
Kvitova then staved off a break point and it jump-started her game. Their most recent match, a third-round encounter at Wimbledon in 2014 that Kvitova won, 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5, is considered one of the best women's matches of the past decade.
Targeting her opponent's misfiring forehand, Kvitova leveled to 4-4 and had break points at 5-4 and 6-5 before sealing the tiebreak. "This match is just a match, but I'm happy with all the period that I've been playing".
And maybe nothing is as inspirational as her run at the U.S. Open.
Muguruza found Kvitova's form astonishing considering what she has been through.
She is in the Grand Slam quarterfinals for the first time since the 2015 United States Open. "I know I didn't have to have these moments, so it's very special".
Kvitova has a greater appreciation for the tour lifestyle after an injury that put her career at risk.
"What she's gone through is unimaginable, unreasonable", Williams said. So for her, I think to be playing well is such a blessing.
The twice Wimbledon champion, who will next face local favorite Venus Williams, the ninth seed, stayed composed while Muguruza grew increasingly nervous, challenging line calls with no apparent reason as Kvitova moved her left and right with her crafty left hand. "To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a handsome thing to see".
