American Coco Vandeweghe defeated defending champion and world no.1 Angelique Kerber in the fourth round of the Australian Open on Sunday. Vandeweghe eased past the 29 year old German 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals.

Vandeweghe will face seventh seed Garbine Muguruza in the quarterfinals. Muguruza, the reigning French Open champion, defeated Romania's Sorana Cirstea in staight sets 6-2, 6-3 in 65 minutes earlier today.
