Defending champion Naomi Osaka ends Coco Gauff's US Open run

Ahn, a 27-year-old American ranked 141st, first qualified for the Open in 2008 at age 16 but didn't collect her prize money so she could play at Stanford, where she helped the Cardinal win the 2013 championship.

Alexander Zverev, the sixth seed, is the highest-ranked player remaining on his side of the draw, as the German survived a second successive five-set marathon by outlasting American Frances Tiafoe 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 to equal his best US Open run. "I just, I would actually need to practice doubles for the first time in my life".

"She encouraged me to do it", Gauff said through tears to ESPN.

"That would be the biggest - like, I would cry". I would actually cry for losing a doubles match. I don't think it would be great for women's sports. "But I need to practice my doubles".

She was clearly distraught after the end of the match, but was consoled by world number one Osaka.

"I was thinking, like, maybe they feel like I'm Golden State in Game 7 or something".

"For me, this is the most focused I've been since Australia", said Osaka, who's had an up-and-down season since earning that trophy.

"I saw Taylor won today". The past year has been, like, insane. I think it's moments like that that sort of make me realize it. They're kind of still playing right now.

Whether it's better to be rested or to play a lot and become match-tough is a toss-up.

"She told me I did fantastic and good luck and asked if I could do the on-court interview with her, " Gauff said as tears rolled. Last year compared to this year, there's no way Kobe would sit in my box, Kaepernick, too. Also through against all expectations is the wildcard from, quite literally, around the corner, Kristie Ahn, who beat the 2017 French Open champion, Jelena Ostapenko, 6-3, 7-5 in an hour and 48 minutes on Grandstand.

"For me, it wasn't pressure". "Even from the first match, even the coaches when they were watching us they just knew, like, 'Wow, they're really good together.' Our games mesh really well together and for us, I mean, I think sky's the limit". That was the thing that was on my mind. On the point that won the second set, Kyrgios caressed a sharply angle backhand volley that the replay showed just caught a sliver of the sideline, causing him to hang a towel from his mouth and glower at the crowd.

Bryant, a two-time Olympic champion, is a friend and adviser for Osaka. She went to the net 105 times against Halep and won 47 of 75 points at the net from Cirstea. How her parents had pushed her to finally give up her struggles as a journeyman touring pro and put her college degree to use in a real job in the corporate world - and how she refused to do any of it. She's a great person.

Asked what causes she supports with a nod to Kaepernick's protest move, Osaka's was simple and admirable.

"At 15, the way she keeps battling and is able to utlilise whatever resources are necessary, including the crowd, is very impressive", he said.
