CHARLESTON, S.C. – Third-seeded Samantha Stosur withdrew in the second set of her match against Eugenie Bouchard, ending a long wet day at the Family Circle Cup.
The ninth-ranked Stosur was out of sorts against the 19-year-old Bouchard from the start Thursday night and lost the first set 6-1. She had her right leg wrapped and spoke with a trainer between sets before going back out. But two games in, the former U.S. Open champ from Australia called her opponent over, wished her well and ended the match.
It was Bouchard's first victory over a player ranked in the top 10.
An earlier rain delay of nearly 7½ hours washed out matches of the tournament's top draws: Serena Williams and her sister Venus.
