(9) πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Venus Williams vs (13) πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ Petra Kvitova

A blockbuster quarter-final from Flushing Meadows on Tuesday sees Venus Williams take on Petra Kvitova.

Petra Kvitova is in the midst of her own special season. After being attacked in the off season and spending half the year on the side-lines, it is incredible to see Kvitova playing so well as she has reached the quarter-final stage at the U.S Open for just the second time in her career. This is going to be an exciting contest between two of the move loved and respected players on tour, Kvitova holds a 4-1 edge in the head-to-head but Venus Williams has been superb at the later stage of Grand Slam events this year and fancy her chances here.

Muguruza will be the favourite heading into this match but Kvitova has won the last two matches between the pair and is always dangerous once she reaches the later stages of a big event. This should be an exciting contest.
