Flushing Meadows, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska was sent packing in the second round Wednesday at the U.S. Open.

China's Peng Shuai upended the former Wimbledon runner-up from Poland 6-3, 6-4 on a hot day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Radwanska has never reached a quarterfinal in New York, where she exited in the fourth round the previous two years. She's been a second-round loser here now five times.

In other action involving seeds, No. 22 Frenchwoman Alize Cornet handled Slovak Daniela Hantuchova 6-3, 6-3 and No. 28 Roberta Vinci overcame Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu 2-6, 6-4, 6-1.
