It was the third time in a row on Thursday, the 21-year-old from Basel lost to Williams. Schnyder was knocked out of the tournament by the tournament's number one seed 4-6 2-6.

In other matches, the Swiss, George Bastl, was not able to capitalise on Wednesday's interrupted third set of his match against the Frenchman, Arnaud Clément, at the Long Island ATP tournament. When play resumed the next day, Bastl lost the second round of the competition 6-4 5-7 7-6, albeit in a tight finish.

There was more bad news for Switzerland's tennis stars at the Long Island ATP tournament: Marc Rosset did not make it to the quarter-finals either. He lost to the Chilean, Nicolas Massu 6-3 6-3.
