Gamewatch: Seles v Hingis
Game-by-game action from the US Open
All the action from Flushing Meadows as Monica Seles beats Martina Hingis to secure a place in the quarter-finals.


M Seles 6-4 6-2 M Hingis
Seles powers to 40-0 and then briefly succumbs to nerves as Hingis refuses to give in. A Seles double fault at deuce suggests a comeback, but she regains her composure to take the match at the fifth opportunity.

The match is quickly running away from Hingis who is unable to get any penetration on serve, and makes a succession of errors in the face of Seles' powerful returns.

The serve is working better for Seles and she closes on victory with an impressive game.

Another unconvincing service game, this time it is Seles who does well to hold under a barrage of fierce returns.

Hingis is beginning to look dispirited as Seles continues to fire back stinging returns, but she holds on to take an early lead in the second set.

A superb backhand on the second point gives Seles confidence and she serves out for the set.

The scores are levelled as the extra power pays off for Seles, who forces several errors from Hingis.

M Seles 2-3 M Hingis
Another close game goes the way of Hingis after two unforced errors from Seles, and the Swiss player is moving her opponent around to good affect.

M Seles 2-2 M Hingis
Neither player can find any rhythm and Seles loses her advantage as she goes for too much power off the ground.

M Seles 2-1 M Hingis
Hingis gets off the mark with a straightforward game that includes a stunning backhand winner.

M Seles 2-0 M Hingis
Despite two double faults Seles is able to build on her break, and Hingis is yet to find her range from the baseline.
