  • Tennis Women main focus on Arthur Ashe on Sunday

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. But sometimes I just really feel that the touch is there, the strength, the aggressive kind of game plan. "It's there, which I really, really appreciate".

"I don't have words to describe", she said.

"It wasn't really nice when I couldn't serve out the set. To be able to be out there and execute things that I wanted, it was a good feeling".

"I'm not thinking like that anymore", she said.

After reaching the final of both the Australian Open and Wimbledon and the fourth round of the French Open, she made it an unhappy birthday for Carla Suarez Navarro with a 6-3 3-6 6-1 victory. The American, like everyone in tennis, was shocked by Kvitova's ordeal and has been inspired by her comeback.

"I'm not going on-site the day off".

Merkel wants end to Turkey's European Union accession talks
This principled stance has won her respect, especially among the young, while the far-right movement she defied has lost momentum. Merkel's tough line comes after Ankara arrested two more German nationals for "political reasons", according to Berlin .

After such a dominant summer, the manner of the loss will concern Muguruza - who had dropped just nine games on her way to the last-16 - whose forehand broke down with Kvitova taking full advantage.

"Overall it's a very good tournament for me". "The world we live in is just shocking". Neither of them has been great in NY, with Kvitova reaching the quarterfinals once, and this being Muguruza's first 4th Round.

"These first rounds against early opponents are very tough, so I just keep playing my best and hope for the win". "To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a attractive thing to see".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said diplomacy is the best way to tackle the standoff with North Korea, in stark contrast to U.S. Merkel argued that the cease of the accession talks with Turkey can only be decided in the concert of the European Union states.

After returning to competition in May, Kvitova has gone through her first four U.S. Open matches without dropping a set - and has been rewarded with a quarterfinal matchup against Venus Williams.

The 2016 French Open victor has made an effort to adapt on all surfaces this season, which has been key to her rise to number three in the world rankings. So for her, I think to be playing well is such a blessing.
