Snapshot from day seven at the US Open

Sharapova vs Kenin live: tv channel, start time, US Open Tennis scores and Updates

Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova rallied to eliminate former world number one Sharapova 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 and book a quarter-final berth against American Sloane Stephens, who ousted Germany's Julia Goerges 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

The five-time major champion's campaign began with an impressive victory over second seed and contender for the title Simona Halep, but copious errors proved costly against Sevastova - seeded 16th. She can use her slice to move Sharapova around the court and turn the match into an uncomfortable grind.

The Russian gave an early indicator of her desire when she won a gutsy point after rushing back and changing hands to return a cross-court volley with a lob in game three.

Venus Williams has produced a dazzling comeback to advance to her 39th grand slam quarter-final with a three-set fourth-round US Open win over Carla Suarez Navarro. Since then she has notched a three-set win over Timea Babos and a straight set win over 18-year-old American Sofia Kenin, but in neither match did she look as sharp as she did in her opener. Sharapova maintained that she took the drug for years because of a magnesium deficiency and family history of diabetes.

"Playing on Ashe is an unbelievable atmosphere every time", she said after the match, via the tournament's Twitter account.

Sevastova matched her best Slam run from last year's US Open while 146th-ranked Sharapova served notice her game remains formidable, having defeated second-ranked Simona Halep in her dramatic opener on the NY hardcourts. It was an incredible opportunity.

Next on the schedule for Sharapova is the WTA event in Beijing at the end of September as she attempts to build her ranking to ensure direct entry into the 2018 Australian Open.

Anastasija Sevastova reacts during her fourth-round win on Sunday.

"Just competing, you know, being in that competitive environment". That drew the "car park" response from Sharapova and, at times here, she played as if she had the limo revving up outside and ready to go.

This was the biggest victory of Kvitova's return to competition after a knife attack by an intruder at her home in the Czech Republic in December. I think she was playing one of the better matches here, one of the best matches here.

Her statistics, however, made for sober reading - 42 winners and 51 unforced errors to only 14 by Sevastova, whose 21 winners were half Sharapova's total.

'I'm thankful for the opportunity. I think it's more of like putting the matches together that process that makes it a little bit tougher when you're coming back.

"I honestly couldn't have asked for a better comeback", Stephens said. Sharapova traffics in power tennis; her serves are rockets, while Sevastova's travel at roughly the speed of the moon orbiting the earth. "I can be proud of that". The 5-foot-7-inch Schwartzman is the shortest quarterfinalist at Grand Slam tournament since Jaime Yzaga, also 5-7, at the 1994 US Open, according to the ATP. We all know that.
