Eva Lys and Tamara Korpatsch were the last German players to be eliminated in the second round of the US Open.
The 21-year-old Lys from Hamburg lost to the Italian Lucia Bronzetti 3: 6, 2: 6 and missed the first entry into the round of the top 32. Korpatsch (28) was 3: 6, 3: 6 against the number 14 seeded Russian Ljudmila Samsonowa also without a real chance of winning. This means that all five German players who started in the individual competition of the Grand Slam tournament in New York are out.
Lys was treated several times during the game and was lying on his back. She fought her way through the qualification with strong performances and didn't drop a set in her first round win against the American Robin Montgomery. She had never previously won a main round match in a Grand Slam. Korpatsch would also have been in the third round of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.
