Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei crashed out of the second round of the US Open women’s singles on Thursday, going down to a 6-4, 7-6 (10/8) defeat to Italy’s Camilla Giorgi.

In a match lasting 1 hour, 41 minutes, Hsieh matched her Italian opponent in almost every department — she committed only one unforced error to her opponent’s three — but Girogi converted five of 13 break-point chances, while Hsieh forced seven break-point chances, of which she converted four.

In the first round of the men’s doubles, Taiwanese No. 1 Lu Yen-hsun and his partner, Divij Sharan of India, defeated Dutch duo Robin Haase and Igor Sisling 7-5, 6-1 to set up a second-round encounter with Israeli pairing Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram.

In the women’s doubles, Taiwan’s Chan Yung-jan and her sister, Chan Hao-ching, were knocked out in the first round after they lost a tight match 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to Germany’s Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke of the Czech Republic.
