First time in the Open era that no American woman in R4 of a GS

Sharapova made the 4R But you're right.

Mattek and King lost R2, Serena and Venus in R3, Ditty, Craybas and Brengle R1.

Tsjaa..no Serena playing and Vee on her last legs. makes it even sadder when they get this kind of treatment.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
