NEW YORK — Chris Evert Lloyd streaked into the semifinals of the U.S. Open tennis championships for the 16th consecutive year today, and defending champion Ivan Lendl made it to the men's semifinals.

Lloyd brushed aside ninth-seeded Manuela Maleeva of Bulgaria 6-2, 6-2. Earlier in the day, Lendl became the first to gain a berth in the men's semifinals with a surprisingly easy 7-6, 6-1, 1-6, 6-1 win over No. 8 Henri Leconte of France.
