The American third seed seemed to struggle physically in high temperatures in NY, with the extreme heat policy again in place.

But the change of ends that followed forced Stephens back into the sunshine and she looked unsettled once more, berating herself as Sevastova moved 4-1 up with a win to love.
She earned the last of five breaks in the second set to take a 5-3 lead and served it out on her third match point when a tired Stephens put a backhand into the net.
Such a run didn't seem likely when she returned to competition in January of 2015, finally healed from a litany of injuries that included debilitating back trouble.
But the 25-year-old American, who lost her quarter-final against Latvian 19th seed Anastasija Sevastova in straight sets, is not about to lose any sleep over her failed bid at a repeat or let it affect her fighting spirit going forward.
But Stephens said afterwards that she had been feeling under the weather in the build-up to the match. "Maybe the top 100". When you go to a tournament, it starts all over again.
"But in the end it's wonderful, yes?" The Spanish player marked her 30th birthday in style with a memorable 6-4, 6-3 win over the five-time Grand Slam champion whose last Grand Slam win was in Paris in 2014.
"Defending a title is very hard, very difficult".
