Australian Open: Vandeweghe knocks out defending champion Angelique Kerber

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.

"I think it's my first win over a World No.1, I guess. I'll take it. I faked it a lot, because I was feeling a bit crap out there. You have to fake it until you make it. I just had to pick my spots and trust my game," Vandeweghe was quoted as saying by ESPN.

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.

Nishikori made a bright start to the match, breaking Federer's serve twice to race ahead to a 4-0 lead. Federer rebounded to break the Japanese superstar on both occasions that he tried to serve out the opening set. Nishikori though regained his poise to take the set into a tiebreak and eventually won it 7-4 much to the disbelief of a packed house in Rod Laver Arena.
