NEW YORK (AP) — Agnieszka Radwanska simply can't make it past the fourth round at the U. S. Open, the Grand Slam tournament where she's had the least success.
A 6-4, 6-4 loss to 24th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia on Sunday night marked the fourth time since 2007 that Radwanska left Flushing Meadows in the fourth round.
She was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2012, and has made it to the quarterfinals at both the Australian Open and French Open. But she's never been past the round of 16 in New York, where she was the No. 3 seed this year.
Makarova had lost all three previous matches she'd played against Radwanska in straight sets. The Russian's victory Sunday allowed her to reach her third Grand Slam quarterfinal — and first at the U. S. Open.
