Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev crashed out of the US Open Tennis 2017 Results on Wednesday night, losing, 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (1), 7-6 (4), in the second round to his fellow 20-year-old Borna Coric. With the late withdrawal of second-seeded Andy Murray, Zverev was the highest seed in his half of the draw, and he had a golden opportunity to make a deep run at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.But he still has not made it past the second round at the United States Open. And his best result at a Grand Slam event is reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon this year.
 
“It’s upsetting because the draw is pretty open in the bottom part,” Zverev said. “I felt like I should have been the favored there. You know, I just played a very, very bad match, so it’s unfortunate. But that’s how it is.”Continue reading the main story RELATED COVERAGE Player (on the Court) Gets Input From Coach (in the Stands) AUG. 30, 2017

Fifth-seeded Marin Cilic, the 2017 US Open Tennis 2017 Schedule champion, is now the highest remaining seed in the bottom half of the draw.
On a night when the tournament lost one rising star, another one grew brighter as 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Canada ousted eighth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (3), in a night match at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Shapovalov upset the top-ranked Rafael Nadal at the Rogers Cup in Montreal this month during a run to the semifinals. Shapovalov, playing in his first United States Open, will meet Kyle Edmund of Britain in the third round.Nick Kyrgios, the mercurial Australian star, offered courtside spectators a running commentary during his first-round match against his countryman John Millman on Wednesday afternoon. Kyrgios complained about his right shoulder, which he appeared to reinjure. He barked an obscenity, which drew a code violation. And he bemoaned his bad fortune, which led to another early exit.
Sixth-seeded Dominic Thiem quickly finished off a match suspended Tuesday, defeating Alex de Minaur, 6-4, 6-1, 6-1. Thiem will next face the 19-year-old American Taylor Fritz, who gained his first win at a Grand Slam tournament, beating Marcos Baghdatis, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Read more about Fritz here.
■ Fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina lost the second set after her first-round match against Katerina Siniakova resumed, but won the match, 6-0, 6-7 (5), 6-3. No. 10 Agnieszka Radwanska and No. 13 Petra Kvitova also advanced.
■ The No. 14 seed Kristina Mladenovic, who has struggled since the French Open, lost to Monica Niculescu, 6-3, 6-2. No. 22 Shuai Peng was beaten by Donna Vekic, 6-0, 6-2.
■ Nicolas Mahut, a qualifier, US Open Tennis 2017 Schedule knocked out 20th-seeded Albert Ramos-Viñolas, 4-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-0 in a second-round match. Richard Gasquet, the No. 26 seed on the men’s side, fell in the first round to Leonardo Mayer, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2. Mayer earned a spot in the main draw as a lucky loser from qualifying. The qualifier Stefano Travaglia upset his Italian countryman Fabio Fognini, the No. 22 seed, 6-4, 7-6 (8), 3-6, 6-0. No. 27 seed Pablo Cuevas also lost, 7-5, 7-6(3), 6-1, to Damir Dzumhur.
■ Seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov, who won the Cincinnati event last week, cruised into the second round with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 win over Vaclav Safranek. He will play Andrey Rublev on Thursday.
■ Tomas Berdych, the No. 15 seed, topped the American Ryan Harrison, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4). No. 24 Juan Martin del Potro won his first-round match, 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (5), on Ashe Stadium against Henri Laaksonen.

■ CiCi Bellis, a U.S. Open crowd favorite, served for the match against Nao Hibino, but lost 12 of the last 15 points to fall, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, in the first round.
 Brienne Minor, the reigning N.C.A.A. Division I women’s singles champion, lost her U.S. Open debut to Ons Jabeur, 6-1, 7-5. Read about Minor and her tennis-loving family.
Kyrgios, the No. 14 seed, never goes down quietly. In that sense, his 6-3, 1-6, 6-4, 6-1 loss to Millman felt like more of the same: same fiery temper, same lack of composure, same disappointing result.
The twist, at least this week, was that Kyrgios arrived at the US Open 2017 Draw with his game and his emotions seemingly intact. He was coming off a fine run at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, where he defeated Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals and later advanced to the final before losing to Grigor Dimitrov.But against Millman, Kyrgios appeared to aggravate a lingering shoulder injury, which forced him to retire from a match at the Citi Open in Washington this month. On Wednesday, during a changeover in the third set, Kyrgios shared his troubles with a physiotherapist who massaged his shoulder.“I’m feeling good, I finally have a good week last week, and then I come to the U.S. Open,” Kyrgios said.
As the match wore on, Kyrgios exhausted his allotment of medical treatments. He commemorated losing the third set by smashing his racket into the general shape of the letter G. (He earned a point penalty for that bit of pyrotechnics.) He spent the rest of the match shaking his head. — SCOTT CACCIOLAThis time Maria Sharapova did not shed any tears or fall to her hands and knees as if she had won a championship. She merely smiled, waved and advanced.
Sharapova, who made her emotional return to Grand Slam tennis on Monday with a striking victory over second-seeded Simona Halep, defeated Timea Babos of Hungary, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-1, in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday in what she described as a “scrappy” match during an interview on court afterward.
Sharapova’s victory over Halep was her first Grand Slam match since the Australian Open in January 2016, after which she served a 15-month doping suspension.
In the third round on Friday, Sharapova will play Sofia Kenin, an 18-year-old who, like Sharapova, was born in Russia but moved to the United States as young child. Kenin beat another young American, Sachia Vickery, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (0).
Kenin was one of several American women to win on Wednesday, including US Open Tennis 2017 Draw (who beat her fellow American Alison Riske), Jennifer Brady, Shelby Rodgers (who beat her fellow American Kayla Day), Nicole Gibbs, Christina McHale and Sloane Stephens, who upset No. 11 Dominika Cibulkova, 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, in 2 hours 42 minutes.And the dean of all American women, ninth-seeded Venus Williams, advanced to the third round with a 7-5, 6-4 win over Oceáne Dodin at Ashe
