Mary Pierce's US Open run came to an end on Monday when she was beaten by 7-6 6-2 in the fourth round by Russian ninth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.

In the first meeting between the two players, the former Australian and French Open champion matched the hard-hitting Kuznetsova in the opening set before losing a tense tiebreak.

But the 29-year-old was overpowered in the second set by an opponent 10 years her junior.

Kuznetsova clinched victory after one hour 23 minutes to advance to the quarter-finals where she will play compatriot Nadia Petrova or world number one Justine Henin-Hardenne.
