New York: Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic sprang to the defense of Sara Errani on Thursday after the Italian made a tearful US Open exit, claiming she had been overwhelmed by the stress of being fourth seed.

"I'm feeling too much pressure. I don't know why, but I'm not enjoying going on the courts, and that is the worst thing a player can have," said Errani, who was defeated by compatriot Flavia Pennetta, 6-3, 6-1 in the second round.

Errani, a French Open runner-up in 2012 and a semi-finalist in New York 12 months ago, had been bumped up to the fourth seeding after the injury-enforced withdrawal of Maria Sharapova.
