KVITOVA 6-0 6-4 GARCIA: A third straight-sets victory for Petra Kvitova at Flushing Meadows! She dismisses the final French player in the tournament with minimum fuss, out-hitting and out-thinking Caroline Garcia.
She was in total control and her odds to win this tournament will be rapidly shortening, even though she will play the winner of Magdalena Rybarikova and Garbiñe Muguruza in a mouth-watering last-16 clash.
KVITOVA 6-0 5-4 GARCIA: Gacia saves two match points to hold doggedly. Kvitova will serve for the match.
KVITOVA 6-0 5-3 GARCIA: How did she manage to win that? Kvitova brings up a second match point with a stunning piece of defending, but Garcia plays perhaps her best forehand of the match to bring up another deuce. Significant game in progress here...
KVITOVA 6-0 4-3 GARCIA: There's that crucial break!
Kvitova earms three break points but she declines to challenge a dodgy-looking line call and it looks like it could cost her, as Garcia brings the game back to deuce. But Kvitova is made of stern stuff, and forces the French player into a couple of mistakes to take firm control of this round-of-32 match.
KVITOVA 6-0 2-3 GARCIA: Much more even in this second set, although Petra Kvitova underlines her continued dominance on serve with another love hold, nonchalantly firing a huge second serve past Garcia to level the set.
Kvitova hunting for a break and she'll have another chance as Garcia prepares to serve at 3-3.
KVITOVA 6-0 GARCIA: Petra Kvitova has way too much power for Caroline Garcia and she marched to the first set without breaking a set.
Given Kvitova is seeded just a few places higher than her opponent, this should be far closer but it's as one-sided a game as you'll see in the women's draw so far.
KVITOVA 3-0 GARCIA: A few mistakes from Garcia has helped Kvitova race into a double break but the Czech player is hitting superbly so far. Dominant start.
KVITOVA 1-0 GARCIA: Kvitova up and running early with a break, despite a couple of aces from Garcia.
Kvitova was able to win the early rallies and the French player is up against it already. Blazing sunshine on Ashe is casting exactly half the court in shade and leaving Garcia, now receiving, facing the glare.
