The Latest: Extreme heat policy in effect again at US Open
NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open tennis tournament (all times local):
Two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza let a lead slip away and was stunned in the second round of the U.S. Open by 202nd-ranked Czech qualifier Karolina Muchova 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
The 12th-seeded Muguruza was up a set and a break in the second but faltered.
Muchova is playing in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.
Muguruza, in contrast, won titles at the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017 and has been ranked No. 1.
“Somehow, I made it. I don’t know how,” Muchova told the Louis Armstrong Stadium crowd.
The match lasted nearly 2½ hours and ended a little past 1 a.m. on Thursday.
