The Australian Tennis players produced mixed results in the final Grand Slam of the season, the U.S. Open Championship in New York.
Bernard Tomic made a first round exit, managing to take only one set in his match with Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The final score was 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6.
Nick Kyrgios beat Great Britain’s Aljaz Bedene 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.
John Millman took the match to five sets before succumbing 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 to Dominic Thiem of Austria.
Samantha Stosur sent Italy’s Camila Giorgi home with a 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-1 victory.
In other U.S. Open news, Eugenie Bouchard, lost to 72nd ranked Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic. Of more concern to journos covering the tournament, however, was Bouchard’s playing in the tournament at all, as she is currently in the midst of a lawsuit against the U.S. Open for a concussion she experienced as the result of a fall at the facility last year. Apparently, the 22-year-old Bouchard, a three-time Grand Slam finalist, feels that the injury she sustained has hampered her results.
Bouchard, of Canada, wound up missing three months as a consequence of the fall, for which she is attempting to receive compensation from the U.S. Tennis Association.
