The US Open’s No 1 seed, Karolina Pliskova, is out of the tournament after a 6-1, 7-6 (2) defeat to France’s Caroline Garcia in the second round.

Pliskova summoned a single winner in a dismal first-set performance, trailing 5-0 and losing the set 6-1. The world No 3, top seed in the absence of Ashleigh Barty and Simona Halep, fought back from a break down in the second set, and had set points to level the match in the 10th game – but Garcia found a crucial ace to set up a tie-break.
