NEW YORK (AP) Wilting in high heat and humidity, Eugenie Bouchard became the latest top woman to lose at the U.S. Open, ending her streak of making the semifinals at each Grand Slam tournament this year.
The No. 7-seeded Bouchard, the runner-up at Wimbledon in July, needed a medical timeout and was beaten 7-6 (2), 6-4 Monday by 17th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia.
In muggy air with temperature in the high 80s (above 30 Celsius), a trainer checked Bouchard's blood pressure and rubbed plastic bags of ice on her shoulders, arms and legs during the changeover after the second set's fifth game.
