Fourth Seed Paula Badosa crashed out of US Open after losing to Petra Martic in women's singles second round.
Fourth Seed Paula Badosa crashed out of US Open after losing to Petra Martic in women's singles second round. Badosa, the fourth seed and potential semi-final opponent of Swiatek, suffered another miserable return to the city of her birth. The Spaniard's failure to get beyond the second round will stretch for another year after losing 6-7 (5/7), 6-1, 6-2 to Petra Martic of Croatia.
Sixth seed Aryna Sabalenka, a semi-finalist in 2021, came back from 1-5 down in the second set and saved two match points to defeat Kaia Kanepi, 2-6, 7-6 (10/8), 6-4.
China will have four women in the last 32 for the first time at a Slam after Zheng Qinwen defeated Anastasia Potapova and Yuan Yue got the better of Irina-Camelia Begu.
Zhang Shuai and Wang Xiyu had already booked their spots in the next stage.
