While the U.S. Open has provided the setting for some of the most sensational eliminations of 2014, there has often been a bruised favourite on the receiving end of them.

David Ferrer was denied the opportunity to add a ninth hard-court title to his collection as Gilles Simon completed a convincing third-round win at the Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Meanwhile, Eugenie Bouchard missed out on a fourth consecutive Grand Slam semi-final when Ekaterina Makarova beat her in straight sets.

The following slides will highlight exactly what went wrong for the U.S. Open's humbled stars.
