NEW YORK -- Defending champion Sam Stosur was pushed for the first time in this year's U.S. Open by American Varvara Lepchenko, but dominated the second set after winning the first in a tiebreaker.
The seventh-seeded Stosur won 7-6 (5), 6-2 on Friday in the third round. She had dropped just five games through her first two matches.
It was still a successful Open for the 31st-seeded Lepchenko. After reaching at least the third round in three straight Grand Slam events, she'll likely climb into the top 30 in the rankings.
Friday could be farewell for 2003 champion Andy Roddick. A day earlier, he announced this would be the final tournament of his career.
The American is set to face Bernard Tomic at night in Arthur Ashe Stadium.
