Vania King was defeated in the third round of the U.S. Open Friday in the first match of the day.

The American player lost 6-2, 6-2 versus women's 22nd seed Daniela Hantuchova from Slovakia in an hour and fifteen minutes of play.

During the game, the 20-year old King never got close to a break point and seemed frequently frustrated with her game.

The second match of the day awaits Serena Williams versus Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez from Spain sometime after 1:00 p.m. EST.
