Radwanska Second Round US Open
Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland serves against Shuai Peng of China Day Three of the 2014 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on August 27, 2014 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.


New York: China's Peng Shuai put a stop to Agnieszka Radwanska's bid to reverse her US Open fortunes on Wednesday, toppling the fourth seed in three sets to reach the third round.

Poland's Radwanska, a former Wimbledon finalist who counts this year's Australian Open among two other Grand Slam semi-final appearances, had hoped to make it past the fourth round at Flushing Meadows in her ninth attempt.

But the 39th-ranked Peng had other ideas, breaking Radwanska three times en route to a victory sealed with a backhand winner on her third match point -- her 28th winner of the contest.
