The WTA Tour is producing some extraordinary comeback during the 2017 Us Open Tennis Championships. And Petra Kvitova's run is a special one as the two-time Wimbledon champion came back after being so close to having her career ended. Back in December 2016, she was the victim of a home invasion, and she got stabbed in her left arm which is her main weapon judging by the fact that she is a left-handed player.

Trying to gather some momentum she came in New York without having big goals but she is only one match away from reaching the last four stages for the very first time. Her latest included a stellar tennis performance against 2017 Wimbledon champion Garbine Mugurza whom she outplayed in straight sets.

For the 27-year-old Czech and the current world No. 14, Venus Williams will stand on the other side of the net next.

Petra Kvitova barrels into the quarterfinals without dropping a single set

A high-caliber WTA tennis star, Petra Kvitova had little success at US Open throughout her career. Getting past Garbine Muguruza, she reached the last eight stages only for the second time. As a matter of fact, US Open is the only Grand Slam where she is yet to reach at least the semis. En route to the last eight, she made no mistakes despite facing some dangerous opponents like Jelena Jankovic, Alize Cornet, Caroline Garcia or Garbine Muguruza. Surging past these players without dropping a single set gives her a certain amount of confidence.

Her comeback story follows a similar pattern to that of Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys or even Kaia Kanepi. All these have been struggling with injuries and various issues lately and seeing them thriving in New York enhances the special feeling US Open bears within its core.

Venus Williams seeks her third Grand Slam final of the season

At 37 years of age, Venus Williams is having perhaps the most solid season in over a decade. She is two steps away from reaching her third Grand Slam final of the season. Despite losing two Major opportunities (Australian Open and Wimbledon) what she has been doing over the past eight months is similar to what Federer means for the ATP tour in 2017.

Venus and Kvitova will have their sixth direct clash and the first one since 2014 Beijing.

Overall, Kvitova leads by 4-1. En route to the quarterfinals, Venus sailed through an easier draw having to deal with three young players. The fourth round put her face to face with Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain who was the only one capable of stealing a set away from the American.

The winner of Venus Willimas vs. Petra Kvitova will face either Sloane Stephens or Anastasija Sevastova for a place in the final.
