Maria knocked out of US Open

Maria’s run at the US Open is over as she was knocked out in the fourth round by No.10 seed Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark by the score 4-6 6-2 2-6. The battle in Arthur Ashe Stadium lasted two hours and 37 minutes.

In a very physical match in hot and humid conditions, Wozniacki got the first break of the match to lead 2-0. In the fifth game, Wozniacki hit a forehand long on break point as Maria got the set back on serve but Wozniacki broke Maria’s serve in the final game of the set to win 6-4.

In the second set, two breaks of serve were enough for Maria to take the second set 6-2 in 59 minutes.

The WTA’s extreme heat policy was in effect at the beginning of the third set as both players had a ten minute break. When play resumed, Wozniacki came out and managed to take the set 6-2 to take the match.

The Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open in Wuhan, China is Maria’s next tournament beginning on September 21st.
