Simona Halep suffers shock first-round defeat at the US Open

Kanepi has an impressive Grand Slam pedigree having reached six quarter-finals including here last year
Simona Halep made a quick-as-can-be exit from the US Open Monday, becoming the first No. 1-seeded woman to lose her opening match at the Grand Slam tournament in the half-century of the professional era.
Kanepi tightened up in the second set, seeing a 3-0 lead wiped out at 4-4, but she kept swinging for the lines and, after breaking Halep for the fifth time, confidently served out one of the wins of her life. Kanepi has shown the occasional ability to grab significant results, including a run to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows a year ago - when Halep also lost in the first round.
U.S. Open favorite Simona Halep was upset in the first round.
Halep had looked primed for a long run in NY after she won the Rogers Cup this month and narrowly missed out on back-to-back titles after losing to Kiki Bertens in the Cincinnati final. She pulled out of last week's Connecticut Open with an Achilles injury. "She played quarter-finals past year", she said. Halep, however, has already secured her rank through the tournament, so she will remain No. 1.
