Schnyder lost her quarterfinal against Elena Dementieva of Russia, world number five, in straight sets 6-2, 6-3 on Tuesday.

It was only the second time in her career that the top woman of Swiss tennis had advanced to the final eight at the US Open.

For his part, Wawrinka was roundly beaten by Britain's Andy Murray 6-1, 6-3, 6-3, and failed to make it into the final eight of the championship.

The Swiss, who won men's double gold at the Beijing Olympics, was playing his 200th match as a professional.

Roger Federer, the world number two, is facing Russian Igor Andreev in his bid to qualify for the quarterfinal.

Four-time US Open champion Federer lost his top ranking to Rafael Nadal last month and still has to win a Grand Slam title this year.
