Williams made the Australian Open and Wimbledon finals this year, her first grand slam championship matches since 2009, while Stephens is back to form after nearly a year out following foot surgery.

As reported by Metro, she will be seen returning to tennis again and this time around, Sharapova wants to be able to live her life to the fullest.

"The depth in the game is so much deeper now than it was at the time", Williams said. That year also included a run to the semifinals at Wimbledon, followed by finals appearances in both the Australian and Wimbledon this year.

The USTA's managing director of corporate communications Chris Widmaier told the New York Daily News that Wozniacki's ire was understandable.

"The answer to that is to look at the larger scheduling philosophy", said David Brewer, the Open's tournament director, when asked about scheduling Sharapova for Ashe Stadium.

Only current number one Karolina Pliskova and fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina can deny Muguruza reaching the top spot for the first time.

United States ninth seed Venus Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, advanced by defeating Spain's 35th-ranked Carla Suarez Navarro 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. Kenin showed her the kitchen sink - a few drop shots, a couple of moonballs.

Two-time Wimbledon Champion Petra Kvitova advanced 6-0, 6-4 over 18th-seeded Caroline Garcia.

Shapovalov would have been the youngest Slam quarter-finalist since Michael Chang at the 1990 French Open and youngest at the US Open since Andre Agassi in 1988. The 37-year-old American is the oldest woman in the bracket. She faces American Sloane Stephens next.

The 18-year-old Kenin produced the best performance of her budding career. Where the Latvian can turn the tables is with her variety and tennis IQ.

Before reaching consecutive semifinals at hard-court tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati in August, Stephens was ranked 934th. But this time, she did not come out the victor against the No16 seed Sevastova.

This is Sevastova's deepest run at a Grand Slam this year. The loss concluded her first Grand Slam event in 19 months following a drug ban.
