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.
