(AP) American teen Victoria Duval couldn't build on her magical victory at the U.S. Open, losing in the second round Thursday.


Daniela Hantuchova, who's 12 years older, won 6-2, 6-3. Duval was up a break early in each set, but both times the veteran from Slovakia took control amid a flurry of errors by the 296th-ranked qualifier.


The 17-year-old Duval had upset 2011 U.S. Open champ Sam Stosur in her second Grand Slam match.


The 30-year-old Hantuchova has been ranked as high as No. 5, though that was more than a decade ago. A 2008 Australian Open semifinalist, her ranking has slipped to 48th. She hadn't reached the third round at a Grand Slam tournament since the 2012 Australian.
