Novak Djokovic called for the doctor as he battled stomach issues in his second round match in Cincinnati

In the women's draw, defending US Open champion Sloane Stephens was untroubled on her way into the third round, defeating German qualifier Tatjana Maria 6-3, 6-2.

Tsurenko stormed back to go ahead 5-4 and sealed the contest on her first match point when a Muguruza forehand from behind the baseline sailed long, giving the Ukrainian world number 44 her first top-10 victory since 2015.

She was beaten just as rain moved in, disrupting play in the combined WTA and ATP Masters tournament.

Tsurenko took down the seventh-seeded Spaniard 2-6 6-4 6-4 in the early match, which was a preview of the challenges faced by top seeds during the day. "It was an important match to get my rhythm, feel the ball, especially now after few weeks off".

Belarus' Aryna Sabalenka eliminated Czech ninth-seed Karolina Pliskova 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 and will now face France's Caroline Garcia, seeded sixth in the tournament.

Novak Djokovic battled stomach issues and a slow start before dispatching Adrian Mannarino to reach the third round in Cincinnati on Wednesday, but third seed Alexander Zverev again crashed out prematurely. I'm happy that I didn't felt pain.

The Wimbledon champion called for the doctor during the second set but put aside his discomfort to progress 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 over the Frenchman before rain halted afternoon play for almost three hours.

She continued: "I have to think what I'm going to do".

Bulgaria's Grigor Dmitrov, who took the title past year after beating Kyrgios in the final, joined the Australian in the third round with a 7-6, 7-5 win over Germany's Mischa Zverev.

Awaiting Kerber is Madison Keys, who beat Camila Giorgi 6-2 6-2. Ukrainian tried to repeat his success of three years ago, when defeated Muguruza in Toronto. Nick Kyrgios shook off a dismal second set to beat Croatian Borna Coric 7-6 (7/1), 0-6, 6-3.

He eventually recovered to clinch a 7-6, 0-6, 6-3 victory to set up a clash with Hyeon Chung of South Korea or Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro.
