Lucie Safarova lost the R4 battle against the American Coco Vandeweghe last night at the US Open (4,-6, 6-7). The Czech held her serve pretty easily and put pressure on Coco several times but unfortunately missed some occasions and key points.

Nevertheless, Lucie proved to be a dangerous player in this tournament even if she was unseeded and had a great run. This was the first time since Wimbledon 2016 that she was reaching the 4th round of a Grand Slam.  She defeated Kontaveit (6-7, 6-1, 6-4), Hibino (6-1, 3-6, 6-2) and Nara (6-3, 6-2).

Safarova should move up the ranking to #32 (or #33 if Sloane Stephens gains enough points). She will now focus on doubles with Barbora Strycova. The pair has already reached the quaterfinals and will face Dabrowski/Xu. Lucie and Bara are currently #17 on the race to Singapore.
