Result: Angelique Kerber through in three sets

Angelique Kerber overcomes Eugenie Bouchard to reach the third round of the US Open at Flushing Meadows.

Angelique Kerber has booked her place in the third round of the US Open after a three-sets win over Eugenie Bouchard.

The German came through 6-4 2-6 6-3 after two hours and 19 minutes of tennis at Flushing Meadows.

Both players broke twice in an evenly-matched opening set, but with the score at 4-4 it was Kerber who made a decisive third break before serving out the set.

Bouchard dominated the second set, breaking the world number nine in three consecutive service games to move 5-1 ahead. Despite losing the seventh game off her own serve, the Canadian broke Kerber once more to take the match into a deciding set.

Kerber regained her composure during the third set as she broke Bouchard's first service game to establish an early advantage.

In a dramatic ninth game, Bouchard saved four match points but Kerber held her nerve to wrap up the match at the fifth attempt.
