Barty toasts 'hell of a year' after US Open exit

Serena Williams

The Australian, who won the French Open earlier this year, was beaten in straight sets by Wang Qiang, the 18th seed from China.

Wang could face Serena Williams, who is seeking a 24th career Grand Slam title to match Margaret Court's all-time record, for a spot in the last four.

Ashleigh Barty is on the brink of becoming the first Australian woman to end the year as the world's No.1 ranked tennis player - yet already has one area to improve on for next season. "I tried to play more patient".

He (McNamara) helped me a lot. I spend hours with the statistics and the video, analyzing what the player is doing. It doesn't matter whether I win a tennis match or not or I've won a Grand Slam or I haven't. I was always impressed with the work.

NY fans will no doubt be ready to cheer, and boo again when Medvedev moves on to play the victor of the match later between top-seeded Novak Djokovic and No. 23 Stan Wawrinka.

There, Konta was 3-1 down before starting to make her comeback, breaking back at love with a deep return in game six and forging the advantage with a backhand down the line victor at 4-3 that pushed her in front. If we think of what Serena is now, she has a chance.

Barty wasn't the only high seed to go down, however. "But it has been a year where we ve hit our goals", Barty said.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport closed at 12:00 p.m. on September 2 in response to tropical-storm level winds. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp also ordered evacuations in all or parts of six coastal counties also effective on Monday.

After dropping the second set, he immediately called for medical attention and sat courtside without his shirt on while the trainer gave him a massage. Both were in Williams' half of the draw and with their downfall, she can now fast track her way to the final if she plays it right of course.

Barty was stunned by Wang Qiang in her fourth-round clash, the second seed making 39 unforced errors in a highly disappointing display. "It was really tough to me to hear he passed", Wang said. Just very frustrating that on the big points today.

Wang took full advantage to reach her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, where she awaits Serena Williams or Petra Martic.

The British 16th seed has raised her game at the Slams this season, and is enjoying her best run at Flushing Meadows, having twice reached the fourth round. It's not really something that keeps me up at night. In men's singles, Andrey Rublev, Diego Schwartzman, Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev are some of the players whose campaign is still alive in US Open 2019.

She said: "I just rolled it, I don't know why".

"I usually know if it's awful early on", Serena said.

"From there, we can talk about the tactics", Drouet said.
