(1) ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ Karolina Pliskova vs (20) ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ CoCo Vandeweghe

Karolina Pliskovaโ€™s destiny is now in her own hands in New York. Pliskova will retain her world number 1 ranking if she is to reach the final at Flushing Meadows but she will be hoping to go one step further than 2016 and win the title. Pliskova is a pretty clear favourite to win the title from here now that the majority of her main rivals are eliminated from the tournament. However, Pliskova will face a big test on Wednesday when she comes up against a red-hot CoCo Vandeweghe. The head-to-head record between Pliskova and Vandeweghe is split at 2 wins apiece, there really is very little to separate these two, meaning this should be a very close encounter with so much on the line. Can Vandeweghe cause an upset?
