Serena Williams beats Kaia Kanepi to reach 2018 US Open quarter-finals



Six-time champion Serena Williams defeated unseeded Kaia Kanepi to triumph 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 on Sunday and reach the quarter-finals of the US Open.

The American superstar survived the hard challenge from the Estonian. “Winning a big game and a very important game and a really tight game, I think it was just a

relief,” said Williams, who took control with a break in the next game and maintained that advantage until she fired a forehand winner on her first match point.

Serena will face Karolina Pliskova in the quater-finals, the eighth-seeded Czech who beat Australian Ashleigh Barty 6-4, 6-4.

Pliskova defeated Williams in the semi-finals in New York in 2016.
