Leylah Fernandez couldn’t put together another long run at the U.S. Open. The No. 14 seed was eliminated in the second round Wednesday with a 6-3, 7-6 (3) loss to Liudmila Samsonova. Fernandez, who turns 20 next week, beat three top-10 players last year during a surprising run to the finals, where she was defeated by Emma Raducanu. Raducanu had already been eliminated in the first round. Fernandez could have played Serena Williams if both advanced to the fourth round.
