Kvitova, who has never reached the quarter-finals at Flushing Meadows, continued her poor results at Grand Slams with season with a 6-3 6-0 defeat to the American.

"Unfortunately I was lying in the bed yesterday and I had a fever, so I didn't come to the site yesterday," Kvitova said. "My body didn't help me today. I tried to play, tried to fight. But my body wouldn't let me fight. That's life. It's not only in the tennis. It's something I hope can help me and make me a little stronger."

Riske will now meet Daniela Hantuchova in the fourth round after the Slovakian beat Julia Glushko 3-6 7-5 7-6(4).
