On the other hand, Jiří Lehečka, the twenty-ninth player in the world, ended unexpectedly, losing three times to Aslan Karacev 3:6. Linda Fruhvirtová lost easily to Danielle Collins from home 2:6 and 0:6, and Kateřina Siniaková was not enough against Anna Kalinska from Russia 4:6 and 2:6.

Twenty-seven-year-old Muchová started the match with a break, but in the fourth game she lost serve herself. The same thing happened again after her next break at 4:3, then the world number 10 broke her opponent's serve for the third time and then won the set.

The second set was unequivocal, from 0:3, the world number two player Hunter did not even win a fifteenth. . After more than an hour, Muchová, whose maximum at the US Open is the fourth round from 2020, converted the first match point in the first match between them. In the second round she will be met by Magdalena Frechová from Poland.

“The first rounds are always treacherous, so I tried to focus on myself and my game. I'm happy with how I ended the second set on serve. I played good exchanges, I went for points. I'm happy with my performance,” she said at the press conference conference Muchová.

“The fact that I played good tournaments before the US Open helped me with my confidence. I felt good on the court. It's a new tournament here and I'm starting from scratch, but I tried to repeat to myself that I have to focus on myself and her game,” added Muchová, who advanced to the finals in Cincinnati in the general round at the US Open.

Thirty-three-year-old Kvitová made it to the 2nd round in New York for the twelfth time in a row. She won the first set against the 65th player in the world Bucsa thanks to four breaks in 35 minutes and already led 5:2 in the second set. However, last year's eight-finalist complicated the ending and the match ended in a shortened game. After an even course, Kvitová worked out the first match point, which she immediately converted.

“For what has happened to me lately, it was a pretty good match. The main thing is that I managed it in two sets and didn't worry in the third. I definitely wouldn't want that,” she told the Kvitová, which is not in ideal condition. “I've been sick for a month now. I can't get rid of my cough, which doesn't add to my asthma. And what's more, here in America, it's quite stuffy at this time of year.”

In the next stage, she will face former world number one Caroline Wozniacki from Denmark, who returned after a maternity break. Both players will meet for the 15th time, Kvitová has a better record so far (8:6). “We've known each other for a long time, she also commented on television, so it felt like she wasn't even gone. We had fun in Montreal, where she played for the first time in a long time. We met in the dressing room and exchanged a few sentences,” said Kvitová.

The talented Menšík knocked out the world's 59th player Barrére after more than three hours. In the duel, he helped himself to 13 aces and played 45 winning balls. In the match, he lost serve twice, he broke his opponent four times.

The Czech teenager followed up on a successful qualification in which he knocked out Italian Fabio Fognini, Swiss Leandro Riedi and compatriot Zdenek Kolář. In the next round, Menšík will challenge another Frenchman, Titouan Droguet.

“I had an excellent start, I didn't let my opponent do anything, I dictated the game and won the set. In the second, I thought I was better, but I unluckily lost my serve at 4:5. In the third set, there was a big scramble. The deciding factor was tie -break, in which I broke my opponent. In the fourth set, I could already see that he was losing physically and mentally, he started making a little more mistakes. I was on my horse and I saw that I had him in the bucket,” Menšík told the Tenisovýsvět server. cz He defeated the French qualifier Couacauda in three hours and 18 minutes. He recorded 23 aces and 59 game-winning balls. He made it to the second round of the US Open for the first time since 2016 and will face Argentine Francisco Cerúndol.

Lehečka, on the other hand, failed. The 21-year-old native of Mladá Boleslav did not build on his good form from last week and lost to the 77th player in the world Karatsev in more than two hours. The Czech men's number one paid for 29 unforced errors in the match, and also offered the opponent 14 break points.

Lehečka did not improve his best on the concrete courts in Flushing Meadows, he was eliminated at the start of the main competition last year as well. The Czech player recorded the worst Grand Slam result of the season. In addition to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, he reached the second round at Roland Garros.

“Overall, I didn't even feel like I was playing a Grand Slam. I tried to prepare as best as I could in one day. The opponent was better, more active. He took advantage of the chances I offered him. In the first set, I had some opportunities that I didn't convert. I made some simple mistakes, from that moment it was under his control,” Lehečka told Tenisový svět.

Eighteen-year-old Fruhvirtová played only two games against Collins, in the second set she got the “canary”. She last won two months ago in the qualifiers at Eastbourne, since then she has scored seven defeats in a row. the first option came. I couldn't do much about it,” Fruhvirtová was quoted by “No one is happy when they lose, but I have to keep working. I wake up in the morning and go to training, the work never ends. I still have many years and many matches ahead of me,” added the eighteen-year-old player.

Siniaková also finished , who paid the price for 35 unforced errors and six lost serves in the duel with Kalinska. The 27-year-old native of Hradec Králové lost her sixth match in a row and was eliminated in the first round for the third time this year at a grand slam. She passed the preliminary stage only at Wimbledon.
