World number 21 Petra Kvitova came back from a set down to beat old foe Garbine Muguruza in an incredible match on Louis Armstrong, taking the deciding tiebreak 12-10/ The 32-year-old just fell short of making world number one after peaking during one of Serena Williams’ many purple patches but the two-time Wimbledon champion claimed the 29th WTA title of an illustrious career at the Eastbourne International back in June and she came close to a 30th three weeks ago, finishing runner-up to Caroline Garcia at the Cincinnati Open.
World number eight Jessica Pegula dropped the second set to Chinese qualifier Yue Yuan on Saturday but it was more a lapse in concentration, as suggested by a 6-0 win in the decider. The 28-year-old is the US number one after her best season on tour, reaching back-to-back quarter-finals at the Australian Open and Roland-Garros as well as a first Masters final in Madrid where she finished runner-up to Ons Jabeur.
Jessica Pegula is through to the round of 16 at the US Open for a first time in what has been her best, most consistent season on tour. The 28-year-old still owns just one WTA title from the 2019 Citi Open but she is often there or thereabouts, as proven last month with defeats to eventual champions Simona Halep and Caroline Garcia in the latter stages of the Canada Masters and Cincinnati Masters, respectively. This is a huge test for the American, though, against a seasoned veteran of the tour with 29 WTA titles worth of experience behind her. Kvitova has beaten Pegula in straight sets in both of their previous meetings, including in the third round here back in 2020, and backing the Czech to win at least a set looks the sensible option even if Pegula should, this time, find a way to battle through.
