Garbiñe Muguruza braved a two-plus hour rain delay and a longtime nemesis on Thursday at the Western and Southern Open. The two-time major champion saved three match points with Madison Keys serving for the match at 6-5 in the set three and went on to claim a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(3) victory in two hours and 18 minutes.

Muguruza won for the first time in three tries against Keys and avenged a loss from two weeks ago at Stanford in the Bank of the West Classic.

Muguruza will move on to face Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals. The Spaniard has taken the last four meetings with Kuznetsova including a straight-sets win over Kuznetsova en route to her second major title at Wimbledon this summer. She also defeated Kuznetsova during her first major title run in the Round of 16 at Roland Garros last season.
