US Open: Jessica Pegula falls to fellow American Madison Keys in round of 16 while Wimbledon...
Two American women were eliminated in the US Open round of 16 on Monday, with Jessica Pegula and Peyton Stearns exiting the tournament.
No. 3 seed Jessica Pegula, the highest ranked American woman, was ousted by friend Madison Keys in straight sets 6-1, 6-3 in just over an hour.
Keys, the No. 17 seed and 2017 runner-up at Flushing Meadows, converted on 77 percent of her first-serve points and used powerful ground strokes to keep rallies short - a little over three strokes on average - to make quick work of her third-seeded opponent and close friend.
