Tough loss for Erin Routliffe in US Open doubles
Friday, 02 September 2022
A difficult defeat for Erin Routliffe and Alicja Rosolska in the second round of the doubles at the US Open.
They were beaten 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-3 in two hours 20 minutes in front of a good- sized crowd on court 12 by the American wildcard team of Caty McNally and Taylor Townsend.
In a match which had multiple breaks of serve, the New Zealand and Polish combination worked their way to 3-0 up in the second set, however the American's then turned their game around to charge back into the match and win the contest.
On day 6 Michael Venus will play twice. He'll play doubles with Tim Puetz against a pair from Portugal, Nuno Borges and Francisco Cabral on court 10 from 1pm.
Later in the afternoon he'll return to the same court with Ellen Perez for his second round Mixed Doubles against Jelena Ostapenko (Latvia) and David Vega Hernandez (Spain).
