Stephens looks to Asia after US Open exit

05 Septembre, 2018, 00:23 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Defending champion Sloane Stephens has been knocked out of the U.S. Open in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia hits to Richard Gasquet of France in a third round match on day six of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The No. 3-seeded Stephens was the highest remaining women's player in the Open with the top two seeds, Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniacki, going down early.

Sevastova will now face the victor of the late game between Serena Williams and Karolina Pliskova in the last four.

Sevastova took five break points to Stephens' two, as Stephens simply seemed unable to find her footing throughout the match.

Stephens, 25, put pressure on her opponent's serve throughout the first set, but failed to convert any of the seven break points in her favor. After a first-round Australian Open exit, Stephens made the French Open finals where she lost to Simona Halep.

Lacazette said it is clear the team are still learning the new system, but he is not anxious about the problems. We have tried everything in pre-season but then when you make a mistake in pre-season it's not that bad.

But it was the 28-year-old's day as she reached a Grand Slam semi-final for the first time in her career.

Encouraged by her home crowd, the world number three threatened a comeback by getting the match back on serve at 4-3 but was then broken again before Sevastova served out.

"I didn't play my best", she said.

"I think it was very physical today and tough to play", Sevastova said.

Expectations that the US Open quarter-finals would bring together last year's finalists were shredded on Sunday when Rafael Nadal won after a struggle and Kevin Anderson was a fearless but exhausted loser in matches of stark contrast. Keys is now the only player remaining from the 2017 all-USA women's semifinal, with CoCo Vandeweghe, Venus Williams and now Stephens all being eliminated.
