Great Britain's Naomi Broady's US Open campaign came to an end in the second round after she lost to world number four Agnieszka Radwanska 7-6, 6-3 at the Louis Armstrong stadium on Thursday (1 September).
Broady, who was playing in the second round of a Grand Slam and against a top ranked player for only the second time in her career, gave Radwanska a fight, playing an outstanding opening set which she should have won.
However, the Polish player came back from a break down to win the dramatic tie break in a game that lasted for an hour and 47 minutes. Radwanska for her part praised the Brit post the game, saying her serves were unbelievable.
"I am so pleased that I could come back in the first set. That was the key set. It was a lot of trouble, running, struggling, but two sets for me."
"She was serving unbelievable, 120 (miles per hour) serves are not easy to get. Every break was huge, then I tried to focus on my serve which was not easy. I was just a couple of points better today."
Broady, who is currently ranked number 82 in the world, would rue the four missed set points that would have put her in a good position to cause what would have been one of the biggest upsets of the tournament this year.
