Veteran American player Bethanie Mattek-Sands (#101) makes a breakthrough in the 2015 US Open by getting into the third round of this slam for the the first time ever! This is her 6th try and this time, she had a convincing win over Coco Vandeweghe (#45) 61 62.
Her first round triumph was over Kateryna Kozlova (#209) of Ukraine 64 63.
This is also the sixth time she has reached the third round or deeper in all the slams.
Her best results have been fourth round appearances in Roland Garros (2013) and Wimbledon (2008).
It will be a difficult ask for her to make it a third time here in the US Open as she will next meet Serena Williams (#1) in the third round.
But well, anything can happen!
