Wimbledon finalist Noppawan Lertcheewakarn lost her third round match today at the U.S. Open. She was defeated by Gabriela Paz, 6-3, 6-4. Lertcheewakarn, seeded number 3, had several break points when Paz served for the match, but failed to convert any of them. Paz won on her first match point.
Meanwhile, some American girls have been doing quite well at the U.S. Open. Number 2 seed Melanie Oudin defeated U.S. player Asia Muhammad, Madison Brengle defeated U.S. player Christina McHale, Coco Vandewegh defeated Katarzyna Piter, and Gail Brodsky defeated Ajla Tomljanovic. There are four Americans in the quarterfinals, and only one--Melanie Oudin--is seeded. Her opponent is Brengle, so at least one American will be eliminated.
