New York, USA, 27 August 2022 | Leigh Rogers

Maddison Inglis and Astra Sharma have missed out on securing a coveted main draw spot at this year’s US Open.

The Perth athletes both lost their final-round matches in the US Open 2022 qualifying competition at Flushing Meadows today.

A bad serving day cost Inglis, with the 24-year-old from Perth only managing to win five points on serve in a 6-1 6-0 loss to China’s Yuan Yue.

World No.88 and Wimbledon 2021 quarterfinalist Viktorija Golubic overcome several rain delays to score a 6-4 6-4 victory against Sharma.

It was the experienced Golubic’s second consecutive win against an Australian opponent, having also eliminated Kimberly Birrell in the second round yesterday.

Sharma’s loss means the 26-year-old’s run of 14 consecutive Grand Slam main draw appearances comes to an end.
