US Open 2019: Mike Bryan fined $10,000 for racquet shooting gesture

US Open 2019: Mike Bryan fined $10,000 for racquet shooting gesture”

So while the No. 2 seed's 6-2, 6-4 defeat by No. 18 Wang Qiang in the fourth round on Sunday was a natural disappointment, the Australian sees the bigger picture - 2019 will go down as a great year for her.

Karolina Pliskova also would have gone to World No.1 if she made the semi-finals in NY, but also lost in the fourth round on Sunday.

"It's been incredible. Yeah, I mean, it's a tough day at the office today, but it's been a year where we've hit our goals".

She had a chance to break back but the hugely impressive Wang, playing in the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time, held her nerve.

Williams had to take a medical timeout but said she felt "good" afterwards, and her spirits will likely have been boosted by the exits of Ashleigh Barty and Karolina Pliskova.

Williams, a six-time US Open victor, romped to a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Croatian 22nd seed Petra Martic to set up a quarter-final with China's Wang Qiang, the conqueror of world number two Barty.

"I think for me more on a personal level to be able to have made it to the quarters for my third slam in a row, I think that's a really, really big achievement for me". "I think he has always been there with me".

Konta has experienced middling fortunes on the WTA circuit while producing some of her best tennis at the majors, reaching the semi-finals at Roland Garros and then advancing to the last eight at Wimbledon last month. "So I'm really pleased with that".

Top-ranked defending champion Novak Djokovic defeated American Denis Kudla on Friday to reach the fourth round of the US Open

Barty made 39 unforced errors against Wang, with her backhand slice, usually one of her best shots, off-color throughout.

Things could still end well in NY for Barty.

She said: "I just rolled it, I don't know why".

Ash Barty will be World No.1 if Naomi Osaka doesn't win the title.

And there is still the matter of doubles at Flushing Meadows.

Because current No.1 Naomi Osaka won the US Open a year ago, she has to defend her crown to defend her rankings points.

The Ukrainian said: "It's going to be another great battle, we always have tough matches".
