Notes: Americans Kristie Ahn and Taylor Townsend made some recent history for American women at the US Open on Saturday . . . By virtue of their third-round victories, Ahn, a wild card, and Townsend, a qualifier, became the first wild card-qualifier pairing to reach the Round of 16 at the US Open since wild card records began in 1987 . . . Ahn earned her entry through the USTA's US Open Wild Card Challenge and is the first Challenge winner, male or female, to reach the Round of 16 in the eight-year history of the Challenge . . . The 141st-ranked Ahn is the lowest seed among the Round of 16.
