WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Top seed Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic suffered a surprise defeat to France's Caroline Garcia in the second round of the US Open on Wednesday.
Garcia looked untouchable in the first set and for much of the second, blasting 30 winners and breaking Pliskova's serve three times en route to the 6-1, 7-6 (2) victory.
The 33-year-old striker, who came on after the interval, latched onto a through pass from teammate Wu Xi before sending it into the net in the 65th minute.
"Kyle played a fantastic first set," added Djokovic. "He didn't do much wrong, he served very well and was aggressive from the back of the court. Usually his forehand is a weapon, but his backhand, especially in the first set, was very strong, very solid."
Fourth seed Naomi Osaka of Japan booked her place in the third round with a comfortable 6-1, 6-2 win over Italy's Camila Giorgi.
Rondon continued to demonstrate his prowess in the second half. In the 48th minute, the Venezuelan striker assisted Swedish winger Sam Larsson to stretch the lead for Dalian.
The victory sends Garcia into the third round, equaling her best US Open result after finishing at that stage every year from 2016 to 2018.
