Local tennis star exits Western & Southern Open. Here's Monday's match schedule.

·3 min read

Mason-native Peyton Stearns fell to Taylor Townsend in the second round of qualifying Sunday night at the Western & Southern Open. The University of Texas junior won the first set, 6-3, before getting beaten by Townsend in the second set, 6-3. During the third set, Townsend was heavily favored on the scoreboard, but just before she could secure the win early, a rain delay knocked them off the court for roughly an hour. When they returned, Townsend sealed the deal, making this the second year in a row that Stearns has missed the main draw.

Last year, Stearns lost to Su-Wei Hsieh during day one.

Now that the main-draw field is fully set, the real action can begin. Due to the spontaneous Sunday rains, there's going to be some shifting with the schedule, so here's what to expect going into Monday, which will consist of ATP and WTA Rounds of 64 across the board:
