US Open: Petkovic Us vs Muguruza the mighty
He fought bravely, but ultimately without a chance: Andrea Petkovic missed entering the third round at the US Open. The 33-year-old from Darmstadt was defeated by 10th Garbine Muguruza of Spain 4: 6, 2: 6. This means that Angelique Kerber is the only one represented as a German participant in the women’s competition.
Petkovic, whose best result was a quarter-finalist in 2011 in New York, was able to build on her convincing performances in the previous weeks at Louis Armstrong Stadium and did not do so with two-time Grand Slam winner Muguruza, whom she knows well from many tournaments. Easy joint training.
However, she had to run after trailing 3-0 in both sets. While Petkovic was almost able to equalize in the first round, Muguruza turned up the pace in the second set and didn’t allow the still-fighting German to get close.
Most recently, the world number nine, who also works as a TV journalist, won the championship again after six years in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
US Open: Osaka without a fight in the third round
Naomi Osaka (23) reached the third round of the US Open without a fight. The defending champion from Japan has benefited from a short-term withdrawal of her opponent Olga Danilovic (Serbia) for medical reasons and will now meet Kaia Kanepi of Estonia or Leila Fernandez of Canada.
