Australian Open champion and second seed Sofia Kenin says she was in tears after losing in the last 16 of the US Open.
The 21-year-old American, the highest seed left in the women’s singles, lost 6-3 6-3 to Belgian Elise Mertens.
“I cried after already. Just trying to hold it back right now. I’m not happy about that match,” she said afterwards.
“Tonight is not going to be such a great night because I’m pretty bummed about what happened. I hate losing.” (BBC)
