eir victory on Sunday makes up for their final defeat in the

NEW YORK -- It was a year and a half ago in Miami that CiCi Bellis first played Serena Williams and, in her fathers words, froze with fear. Custom Boston Celtics Jerseys .After winning only two games in the straight-sets loss, Gordon and Lori Bellis told their then-16-year-old daughter, You just played the biggest-serving, hardest-hitting, best player in the game. You have nothing else to be fearful of.Friday night, on one of the biggest stages in tennis, the 17-year-old American played the second-best player in the womens game and learned that while she might have a ways to go to defeat the proverbial big girls, she is no longer fearful.I think today was the best experience Ive ever had in tennis, Bellis said after being vanquished by Angelique Kerber 6-1, 6-1 in 55 minutes. Her groundstrokes are perfect. I hope to one day be able to play like her.It was the tour-leading 50th victory of 2016 for the 28-year-old Kerber, the 2016 Australian Open champ, Wimbledon finalist and French Open quarterfinalist. The second-seeded German -- who made her Arthur Ashe Stadium debut in 2007, when as a 19-year-old she lost in straight sets to Williams -- was complimentary of her young opponent.Shes a great young, really talented player, said Kerber, who moves onto the round of 16 against Petra Kvitova. For sure she will have a great future.Gordon Bellis had half-joked after his daughters second-round victory over French Open quarterfinalist Shelby Rogers that he intended to plead with tournament officials to not have CiCi play the late-evening match because she generally went to bed at 10.Fridays match began just before 10, and while Bellis seemed alert enough in her Ashe debut with two break points in the first game, Kerber would hold and get down to business soon enough.Kerber broke Bellis twice in the 31-minute first set, then three more times in the second, showing her experience and court savvy in a way that inspired Bellis more than anything else.I think were around the same height, Bellis said. She doesnt have the biggest serve in womens tennis. I definitely dont either. I think shes a really good person to model my game after. ... Definitely an unbelievable match for me to be able to play, to play against.Bellis, who first captured the adoration of New York fans as a 15-year-old in 2014 with an opening-round upset over No. 13 Dominika Cibulkova, showed her tennis gumption with a late service break against Kerber to prevent a second-set bagel.In the end, she got to upgrade her hotel room to a suite and enjoy more than a week of tennis with three victories in qualifying and two in the main draw. But Bellis latest US Open ride came to an end with her blowing kisses to the crowd as she left the court.Its the most amazing court I ever played on ... the best court in the world, she said.Bellis said maintaining her amateur status and attending Stanford next year is still an option as she left $140,000 for her third-round appearance on the table. But it will not deter her from her next order of business.Now is going to be the best part of my trip here because now I actually get to go shopping, kind of explore a little bit, she said. My friend just actually came in town yesterday. Were just going to really go hit everything, just play it by ear, see what she wants to do, just figure it out from there. But were going to have a lot of fun. Shaquille ONeal Jersey .

The Olympic champions were broken when they served for the opening set at 5-4 but regrouped in the tie-break to edge ahead of the third seeded American-Czech partnership before a single break in the second set proved enough to seal the title.Left-hander Makarova finished off the contest on the pairs fourth championship point when Mattek-Sands could only get the frame of her racket to a booming serve out wide. It was such a great match and a real pleasure to play in, Vesnina said. It was really tough until the end, a really close match and we were so happy that we won it.
