US Open 2018: Wozniacki crashes out, Sharapova to meet Ostapenko

"I felt like I'd been practicing really well, playing really well for the week leading up to the tournament", Wozniacki told reporters.

"The other me", Djokovic said with a smile, "that my first me doesn't like".

Lesya Tsurenko for the repetition of a personal record at the US Open on Saturday will argue with the 54-th racket of the world the Katerina Sinyakova, which in a hard match beat Islay Tomljanovic (6:3, 6:7, 7:6).

Sandgren, who made a surprising run to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, noticed Djokovic's dip in the third. Wimbledon is all white, it's tradition.

The alternate version of himself that Djokovic detests - when his mind, more than his skill, becomes the problem - surfaced in a puzzling third set when the 31-year-old Serb was only one point from victory but couldn't close the deal. You can't hear a sound when you play a point. "I think regardless what happens for the last few tournaments of the year, it's still going to be a great year because I won in Australia", said Wozniacki in her press conference. "Here it's different. That's why these majors are unique in their own way". "I've never played match against her".

Wozniacki is 5-3 in grand slam matches since, following a fourth-round showing at the French Open with second-round departures at Wimbledon and the US Open, where she was the runner-up in 2009 and 2014.

After an open weekend, the series heads to Darlington for their "Throwback Weekend", and the Southern 500 on September 2. Larson has only four top-10 finishes in the last 10 races (40%) and that means he is trending the wrong direction.

"She played the game that I was supposed to be playing", Wozniacki added.

Like Halep's first-round loss to Kaia Kanepi, Wozniacki could have no complaints after being well beaten by Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko 6-4 6-2. It took me, I think, more than three minutes walking through the people, because there were so many fans. All I can do now is regroup, think what I can do, and also just make sure my body is 100 per cent.

"I'm always going to say it's a great season because I won my first major", she said.

For an exit in the fourth round of the US Open in 2018 from Kiev will meet with Czech Katerina Sinyakovo (No. 54), which won the Australian Ayla Tomljanovic (№58) - 6:3, 6:7 (3:7), 7:6 (7:4). But I did. I'm very proud of that. "I don't think it ever gets easier". That disappeared when it looked as if she and Tsurenko would stay on serve but the Dane's vulnerabilities came to light for the Ukrainian who got the break in the fifth to take the lead.

Over on Arthur Ashe, Maria Sharapova avoided more late-night drama, recovering from a break down in the second set to defeat Sorana Cirstea 6-2 7-5 and set up an exciting clash with Jelena Ostapenko.
