The night session, i.e. the evening program, today at the US Open will concern both Czech singles players who will play in the third round matches. Marie Bouzková will open this program on center court (Arthur Ashe Stadium) with a duel with world number five Uns Džábirová. Markéta Vondroušová, on the other hand, will end the night session at the Louis Armstrong Stadium, where she will play with Ekaterina Alexandrová. Barbora Strýcová made it to the mixed doubles quarterfinals alongside Mexican Santiago Gonzalez.
Bouzková lost to Džabírová after a fighting performance
Marie Bouzková (31st) will not make it to the round of 16 of the US Open. In the 3rd round, the Czech tennis player was not enough for world number 5 Uns Džabírová (5th), who lost in two hours and 56 minutes after sets 7:5, 6:7(5) and 3:6.
The native of Prague finished the match with a leg injury that she sustained in the seventh game of the second set. Still, she gave a very combative performance and no one would be surprised if she walked away from Arthur Ashe Stadium as a winner. In the tiebreak of the second act, she already led 4:3, but the following exchanges went to the side of the Tunisian. Džabírová dictated the pace of the match, accumulating 56 winners and 63 unforced errors. And even though she didn’t exactly play her best game, it was enough for her health-indisposed opponent.
Vondroušová already has a very rich history with Alexandrova. In six matches, she was able to beat her four times, the last time this year at the tournament in Adelaide, where she beat her 4:6, 6:3, 6:2.
But it is almost certain that after two matches in which she was a huge favorite (which she also confirmed in the end), Vondroušová will face the first serious test of her readiness for the American Grand Slam. Alexandrova didn’t exactly have the easiest draw, but she handled both Leylah Fernandez and Lesja Curenko and is now set to challenge the Wimbledon champion.
Strycová made it to the mixed quarter finals
Barbora Strýcová advanced to the mixed doubles quarterfinals alongside Mexican Santiago Gonzalez. In the round of 16, the Czech-Mexican couple beat the Chinese-German couple Chao-süan Yang, Kevin Krawietz, who sent them off the court in 54 minutes after sets 6:2 and 6:2.
Strýcová and Gonzalez allowed their opponents only three break points in the match, and they were able to prevent all of them. In the next stage of the US Open, they will face the Japanese-Croatian duo Ena Šibaharaová and Mate Pavič.
