Barbora Krejcikova beat Garbine Muguruza in Cincinnati and can win again in New York.
The No.8 seed has won 28 of her last 31 matches. She started 2021 ranked 65 and without a singles title on the WTA Tour.
The 25-year-old turned that around by winning titles in Strasbourg, the French Open and Prague. The Czech reached the third round at the Olympics and lost to Ashleigh Barty in the Cincinnati quarter-finals.
Krejcikova hasn’t lost a set at the US Open. She beat Astra Sharma 6-0 6-4, Christina McHale 6-3 6-1 and Kamilla Rakhimova 6-4 6-2.
Muguruza started the year strong but failed to fire on clay and grass courts. The former World No.1 switched back to hard courts at the Olympics where she lost to Elena Rybakina in the quarter-finals.
The ninth-seeded Spaniard lost in the first round in Montreal and the second round in Cincinnati, losing 6-1 6-7 6-2 to Krejcikova.
Muguruza beat Donna Vekic 7-6 7-6 in the US Open first round followed by a 6-4 6-2 win against Andrea Petkovic. She beat Victoria Azarenka 6-4 3-6 6-2 in the third round.
Krejcikova is 1-1 against Muguruza with both matches coming in 2021.
