Kvitova will need to be if she wants to beat Williams, who was pushed in her fourth-round match against Carla Suarez-Navarro, needing three sets to get the win.

Muguruza found Kvitova's form astonishing considering what she has been through. "It's much more easier for me to feel more normal than before".

"I take every match as a final", Muguruza said post match.

The break lifted the 27-year-old's game and she snatched a break to serve for the set. "What else can I say except I'm glad to see her back?"

Muguruza responded well to break at the start of the second but another double fault immediately handed Kvitova three break point opportunities and she converted. After playing at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, Kvitova is only playing in her eighth tournament of the year at the U.S Open.

"I think that she's playing unbelievable on the majors this year". "I think she played very good. I know I didn't have to have these moments, so it's very special".

Hurricane Harvey Sends Gasoline Prices Up
However, the contract traded at $46.09 a barrel, up 13 cents Thursday, after falling more than one per cent on Wednesday. As a result, if refineries restart and crude oil and employees can get to them, they is enough product to refine.

Port Arthur Mayor Derrick Freeman said nearly 100 percent of the 20,000 homes in Port Arthur have some type of water in them. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center will start issuing advisories on Irma today.

Harvey shuts down America's largest gasoline pipeline, but don't panic just yet
The pipeline supplies almost 40% of gasoline in the South, with a capacity of 57.5 million gallons of gasoline per day. But gas stations will eventually have to respond by raising prices for consumers, at least temporarily.

"Pretty good performance from her", said Muguruza, who still has a chance to move up to No. 1 in the WTA rankings for the first time after the tournament, depending on other players' results the rest of the way. Not only a tournament, but the summer in general.

The 13th-seeded Czech left-hander ousted Spanish third seed and reigning Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 to book a Tuesday last-eight date with USA ninth seed and seven-time Grand Slam victor Venus Williams.

"What she's gone through is unimaginable, unreasonable", said Williams.

"I think it's incredible that she's playing at this level", Muguruza said.

The Czech claimed the Birmingham title in June but has since struggled to go deep in the tournaments, including her pre-U.S. "To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a lovely thing to see". If fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina fails to reach the semifinals and top-seeded Karolina Pliskova fails to reach the final, the top spot will be Muguruza's for the first time.
