US Open 2017 PHOTOS: Sharapova, Muguruza, Kvitova, Venus advance to the fourth round

Maria Sharapova’s rise through the rankings at the 2017 US Open continued on Friday night as the Russian punched her ticket for the fourth round, just as her fellow Grand Slam champions Garbine Muguruza, Petra Kvitova, and Venus Williams.

Playing her third consecutive match inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, Sharapova beat American Sofia Kenin in straight sets, setting up a quarterfinal match with Anastasija Sevastova. The victory will bring the 30-year-old back to the Top 100 in the WTA rankings, a position that will guarantee her direct entry into the 2018 Australian Open.
