In a second round match played in 40-degree heat, Belarusian 10th seed Victoria Azarenka
collapsed whilst trailing Gisela Dulko 1-5 in the first set. Azarenka was subsequently taken to hospital in a wheelchair where she was diagnosed with mild concussion and later released a statement saying that a mishap in the gym, and not the heat, caused her to collapse during the match. Her second round retirement represented her worst ever performance at Flushing Meadows, having never previously fallen before the third round. It was also the second time she was forced to retire from a match at a Major, when she retired in near identical circumstances against Serena Williams at the 2009 Australian Open. See more
