US Open 2019: Defending champion Naomi Osaka loses to Belinda Bencic

US Open 2019: Defending champion Naomi Osaka loses to Belinda Bencic”

She received incredible support on social media, helping her produce some personal growth even if she won't add to her Grand Slam trophy case. Roger Federer holds the men's record of 20; they only could meet in the final this year. They gave McCoco a huge ovation when it was over in appreciation of their week in NY. "I was surprised because I just thought it was for the people in there, the stands". She owns a tour-leading nine victories over top-10 opponents in 2019 and is 4-1 for her career against top-ranked players. Ahn hasn't dropped a set in the tournament so far, so something has to give.

Monfils next takes on No. 24 Matteo Berrettini, who earlier defeated Andrey Rublev in straight sets.

Osaka's loss comes the day after top seed Novak Djokovic fell to another Swiss, Stan Wawrinka.

"Team McCoco" finally met its match in the U.S. Open Monday.

Azarenka and Barty move on to a quarterfinal matchup against the top-seeded team of Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic. Don't have the most winners or most aces.

For Mertens, it's her second-best showing in a Grand Slam event, after reaching the semis of the Australian Open previous year.

"I feel like the steps I've taken as a person have been much greater than I would imagine at this point, so I hope I can keep growing". She served for it, she had match points.

"You have to figure out how to win those matches".

Bencic got off to a bright start on a rainy day in NY, breaking the world number one under the closed roof of Arthur Ashe Stadium, and her superior serving carried the day as she won 82% of her first serve points.

Gauff became an overnight sensation in July when she reached the fourth round of Wimbledon, beating the likes of Venus Williams in the process. Berrettini became the first Italian man in the US quarterfinals since Corrado Barazzutti 42 years ago.

Was it a factor under the roof at Arthur Ashe stadium?

The defending US Open champion proved too much for Gauff, but the two shared a touching moment on the court after the match in emotional scenes.

Vekic, a 23-year-old from Croatia, reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final by saving a match point and edging No. 26 Julia Goerges of Germany 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-3.

Vekic is meanwhile enjoying her best run at the majors with the stunning comeback after last year's Wimbledon semi-finalist Goerges threw away what seemed an assured fourth win in as many meetings with the Croatian. "I was really going out there, when she was serving for 5-4, I was really thinking I could win this game and try to turn the match around". Vekic beat Bencic in the third round of this year's French Open.

But the 21-year-old's quest to win back-to-back titles in NY came to an end Monday when she was ousted by giant killer Belinda Bencic, 7-5, 6-4.

By then, Bencic was up a set and a break, employing a quick-strike style of taking balls early and snapping them back, rushing Osaka and not leaving her not enough time to respond.

Tournament officials announced that play would not begin before 12:30 p.m. on any of the outside courts.

Bencic, the 13th seed, will play Donna Vekic in the quarter-finals. Bencic had 29 winners, to 26 for Osaka.

Nadal has played just two matches and spent a little more than four hours on the court, getting a walkover in the second round and winning twice in straight sets.

"Yeah, definitely", McNally said in response to a question about their future as a doubles team. Taylor Townsend and Kristie Ahn of the us hope to extend their longest runs in Grand Slam tournaments.
