Aga beaten by Vandeweghe
American CoCo Vandeweghe earned just her second win over Agnieszka in seven previous meetings to score a win at her home major tournament, reaching the second week for the first time in Flushing Meadows. Aga lost this match 5-7 6-4 4-6 in nearly 3 hours of match play.

The up-and-down first set saw no less than four service breaks. It was Radwanska who drew first blood, jumping out to a 3-0 advantage with an early break, but the recently married Pole would double fault at 3-1, 30-40 to bring the set back on serve. Vandeweghe squandered three set points serving at 5-4, tossing her racquet to the Ashe Stadium cement in frustration, but eventually closed out the 64-minute set on a Radwanska error.
Aga would battle back in the middle stanza, biding her time and scoring a set-sealing break with Vandeweghe serving at 4-5. The two foes would again exchange service breaks in the third set before a pumped up Vandweghe — not one to conceal her emotions — pulled away for good, a forehand winner on her second break point of the seventh game the winning margin. Serving for the match at 5-4, she would strike her third and fourth aces of the afternoon, saving her best tennis for last.
