New York, Sep 4 (IANS) Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro defeated Russian star Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-3 to earn her place in the quarter-finals of the US Open tennis tournament.
Suarez, who turned 30 on Monday, is playing her eleventh US Open and made it to the quarter-finals for the second time after her first quarter-final in 2013, reports EFE news agency.
Suarez's win over Sharapova, who won the 2006 US Open, broke the Russian player's winning streak of 22-0 on the centre court of the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, and was the second loss to the Spaniard in six games on the circuit (4-2).
Suarez's next opponent will be the fourteenth favourite American Madison Keys, who easily beat Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 6-3, to reach the quarter-finals of the US Open for the second consecutive year.
