Venus Williams and Petra Kvitova Continue Remarkable Runs to US Open Showdown

Suárez Navarro, a tenacious Spaniard with a fluid one-handed backhand, was a known quantity for Williams, having won thee of their previous seven matches.

Kvitova is a two-time Wimbledon champion, but her ability to continue to contend for major titles — or even play at all — had been in doubt after a vicious knife attack during a home invasion in December severely damaged her left hand.

Muguruza, the reigning Wimbledon champion, led by 4-1 in the first set but struggled to match Kvitova’s power on crucial points.

The loss notwithstanding, Muguruza remained upbeat about her summer, which included a title in the Cincinnati event.

At her first two majors after returning from her hand injury, Kvitova did not advance past the second round.
