The seventh-seeded Bouchard was the only woman to make it to at least the semifinals at each of the year's first three Grand Slam tournaments.


New York: Bothered by the heat and stifling humidity, Eugenie Bouchard felt dizzy and her vision was blurry.

She got her blood pressure checked. Plastic bags filled with ice were rubbed on her shoulders, arms and legs during a second-set medical timeout.

Bouchard tried to carry on, but it was hardly an ideal time to try to win a tennis match. The No. 7-seeded Bouchard became the latest top woman to bow out at this surprise-filled U.S. Open, beaten 7-6 (2), 6-4 on Monday by 17th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the fourth round.
