Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza saved three match points on her way to beating American Madison Keys for the first time in four meetings. The Spanish fourth seed came through 6-4 3-6 7-6 to set up a quarter-final against Russian eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, who beat Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2 6-4. Sixth seed Caroline Wozniacki saw off Australian qualifier Ashleigh Barty 6-4 6-2. The Dane could next meet world number one Karolina Pliskova, who was leading Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi 3-0 when play was suspended. Fifth seed Elina Svitolina, who could become world number one if she wins the title, has yet to start her third round tie against Germany’s Julia Goerges and could then also face the winner of another delayed match between American Sloane Stephens and Russian Ekaterina Makarova on Friday.
