Defending Champion Kerber Eliminated From US Open

Defending Champion Kerber Eliminated From US Open

"I'm still the same player and the same person, so I think it's just - yeah, I think it's just the matches and how I played last year from the beginning and how I'm struggling this year", Kerber said. She also exited the French Open at the first hurdle and has not made a slam quarterfinal in 2017.

As players ran for cover from drenched outside courts where just 90 minutes of action was possible, and only three matches completed, Osaka's big-hitting game flourished under the roof of Arthur Ashe Stadium. "I was practicing good", she added.

At the start of the US Open, eight women were in contention to be world number one at the end of the fortnight.

Playing in the U.S. Open main draw for a third time, Kenin entered the tournament as a wildcard after winning the U.S. Open Wild Card Challenge.

Taylor Swift's 'Look What You Made Me Do' Just Made YouTube History
The new video acquired 30,000 views per minute during the first 24 hours and averaged 3 million views per hour. Director Joseph Kahn celebrated the achievement on Twitter, telling Swift's fans "you are all amazing".

"I think, yeah, it was not my day, completely not my day today", Kerber said.

Kerber, who despite her poor form held the number one spot until Wimbledon, will now fall outside the top 10. "But for me it was for sure not the best day and not the best match", said Kerber.

No. 23 Barbora Strycova, Pliskova's Czech countrymate, also advanced with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Japan's Misaki Doi, while No. 28 Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine was upset by Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium, 6-3, 6-1.

Osaka moves on to play the victor of Rebecca Peterson of Sweden and Czech Republic's Denisa Allertova, whose match was postponed due to rain on Tuesday. It was her first top-10 win, but this very contained young woman was not about to leap for joy-it is not her way. Federer, seeded third, meets young American Frances Tiafoe on Tuesday night under the lights.

Noted dirty player Vontaze Burfict suspended 5 games for dirty hit
The Bengals and Chiefs faced off in the second preseason game for each team on August 19, a 30-12 road win for Kansas City. The Bengals' linebacker has always been known for hard hits, and it's one of those that has him in trouble now.

Last year's runner-up and current world number one Karolina Pliskova had no trouble in her opener, as she began play on Ashe on Tuesday with a 6-2, 6-1 triumph over Poland's Magda Linette.

Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 champion in NY, starts against Switzerland's Henri Laaksonen.

Pliskova, who earned the top ranking just over a week ago with a Cincinnati final against Garbine Muguruza, was playing her first match as a grand slam top seed.

The Latvian won 12 of the last 14 points to seal the deal in a tie suspended at 3-1 in the final set five hours earlier.
