New York: Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray stayed on course for a mouth-watering US Open quarter-final showdown on Saturday as five-time women's champion Serena Williams stood alone as America's last singles title hope.

But as the heavyweights of the sport eased into the fourth round, the women's draw was blown open again when Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova became the fifth top 10 seed to exit in the first week.

Kvitova's misery was shared by American tennis after John Isner and Sam Querrey were both knocked out in the third round leaving the hosts still without a men's Grand Slam champion since Andy Roddick triumphed in New York in 2003.
