Vandeweghe vanquishes Jabeur in US Open second round

NEW YORK, NY, USA -- American CoCo Vandeweghe, the 20th seed, outplayed unseeded Ons Jabeur in a night match at the US Open on Thursday, eliminating the Tunisian, 7-6(6), 6-2, and advancing to the third round of her home Grand Slam for the very first time in her career.

Jabeur had beaten Vandeweghe in their only previous meeting, in the final of an Challenger event in Canada in 2013.  The 23-year-old recently cracked the Top 100 for the first time in what is turning out to be her breakthrough season on the WTA.

No.20 seed CoCo Vandeweghe gets by Ons Jabeur under the lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium, moving on to the US Open third round for the first time in her career.
But Vandeweghe is also riding high in her career-best season, sitting just outside the Top 10 in the Race to Singapore after a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open, the second Wimbledon quarterfinal of her career, and a run to the final of the Bank of the West Classic last month.

In the third round, Vandeweghe will face an incredibly tough test against No.10 seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland. Radwanska has won five of their six previous meetings, all of those wins coming on hardcourts.
