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.

White House apologizes over wrong African-American jobs claim
The agreement Gorka referenced is separate from the form Manigault Newman was likely referring to. Mr Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric against Manigault Newman on Tuesday.

"I have always loved being in NY", said the 33-year-old Kanepi, twice a quarter-finalist at the tournament who has been ranked as high as world number 15.

There would be no such turnaround for her against Kanepi, a big hitter who dictated the points to claim her second career win against a top-ranked player - but first top-20 victory since 2015.

Kanepi advances instead, moving on to play qualifier Jil Teichmann in the second round.

Mifsud, who "has not returned to the United States" since February 2017, has not been publicly charged with a crime. Papadopoulos was also the first Trump campaign adviser to plead guilty in Mueller's investigation.

"I thought, 'I just have to be aggressive and try to stay calm,"' Kanepi said.

Halep recovered and it appeared a comeback was on when she broke Kanepi to love to level the second set at 4-4.

Of the 34 Grand Slam tournaments SHalep has played in, she has gone out in the first round on 12 occasions.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez may still be persuaded to get his cheque book out before La Liga's transfer window closes on Aug 31.

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.
