Simona Halep dumped out of Flushing Meadows!

For the very first time in the Open Era the world number one on the ladies side has lost in round one of the tournament.

Simona Halep who had looked so sharp in Montreal and Cincinnati but of course lost the final to Bertens recently was defeated once again as she fell to Kaia Kanepi.

Kaia’s performance was excellent!

She hit errors but hit winners and on a hard court we know the smallest margin can decide a match.

Kaia and Simona’s winner/unforced error ratio read at 26/28 for Kaia and 9/9 for Simona who was not competitive at all.

This is the 12th time in 34 tournaments that Simona has lost in the first round of a major !

This is Kaia’s first Top 10 win in over 3 years!
