It only seemed as if Simona Halep made history Monday in a New York minute. Actually, it took all of 76 minutes for her to become the first No. 1 women’s seed in the history of the United States Open to lose in the first round, falling by 6-2, 6-4 to Kaia Kanepi. As Halep’s trademark on-court soap operas go, the stunning upset was still swift, almost routine. Kanepi, a 33-year-old Estonian who is ranked No. 44, dominated a sluggish Halep in the first set before halting her rally to 4-4 from 0-3 in the second in the first main-draw match at the new Louis Armstrong Stadium. How to explain Halep’
Simona Halep (Romanian pronunciation: [siˈmona haˈlep]; born 27 September 1991) is a Romanian professional tennis player. The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) ranked her world No. 1 in singles on two separate occasions between 2017 and 2019. She reached the No. 1 ranking for the first time on October 9, 2017. On her second occasion, she held the ranking for 48 consecutive weeks. In total, she has been No. 1 for 64 weeks, which ranks tenth in the history of female tennis. Halep was the year-end No. 1
Simona Halep kept alive hopes of regaining the world number one ranking Sunday, beating Polona Hercog 5-7, 7-6 (7/1), 6-2 to reach the last 16 where she will play Venus Williams at the Miami Open. Halep, 27, lost her place at the top of the rankings following Naomi Osaka’s triumph at the Australian Open earlier this year. But with the Japanese faltering here on Saturday, Halep can return to the position she last held at the end of 2018 if she lands the Miami Open for the first time. “It’s always tough against Venus,” said the current world number three, who has beaten the American in their pre It was another disappointing ending for Stephens, who fell in the third round at Indian Wells.

Simona Halep became the first top-seeded woman to lose in the first round of the U.S. Open in the open era by losing 6-2, 6-4 to No. 44 Kaia Kanepi.

"Definitely was a very tough match, so long," said Halep, who has twice reached the final at the French Open but never won a Grand Slam singles title. "I never played the third set so long, so I'm really happy I could stay and win it. I'm almost dead." It equaled the longest women's singles match at the Australian Open in terms of games played: Chanda Rubin's win over Arantxa Shanchez Vicario in 1996 was also 48 games. "I just feel that my muscles are gone," said Halep, who badly twisted her left ankle in the first round. "My ankle is, I don't know how it is because I don't feel it anymore! But it was nice to win this match." Davis lost the three previous times she'd played in the third round of a major, but did everything possible to stay in the match, keeping long rallies alive to put pressure on Halep.
Second seeded Simona Halep worked the night shift for the first time at the U.S. Open and found it to her liking as she steamed past American qualifier Shelby Rogers 6-2, 6-3 to reach the fourth round at Flushing Meadows.

The contest lasted just over an hour, with the second set being a particularly lopsided affair. “This is the third match where I have played really great tennis,” Halep said. “It’s not a surprise because I’m more confident in myself, and I’m feeling the ball really well here.

NEW YORK — World No. 1 Simona Halep is definitely a perplexing figure to get a true read on as she journeys through women’s tennis. At times, she’s hot-headed and determined, traits the 26-year-old believes align with her Romanian roots. It was Halep’s second consecutive first-round departure at the US Open having fallen to Maria Sharapova last year. In all, Halep’s lost by the third round during six of her nine appearances at the US Open. “I’m not complaining,” Halep said. “I just say that I don’t really feel 100 percent my game when I step on the court here.
Simona Halep was tired. Lauren Davis was exhausted. The fans watching could hardly catch their breath. It was a marathon moment we won't soon forget. Just because Lauren Davis lost doesn't mean she failed. Go ahead and ask Lauren Davis about her heartbreaking loss to Simona Halep and she'll tell you everything is OK. It's that attitude that will propel her to new heights. Time to be concerned, very concerned, for Maria Sharapova. Halep, who lost in the first round at the Australian Open in 2016 and 2017, said she was mentally stronger now. "I was down love-40. She had three match balls.
Simona Halep of Romania leaves Louis Armstrong Stadium after her first-round loss Monday at the U.S. Open. Danielle Parhizkaran/USA TODAY Sports via Reuters. Some players, like top-ranked Simona Halep, freely acknowledge they don’t deal well with the hustle-and-bustle of the U.S. Open and all it entails. Others, like 44th-ranked Kaia Kanepi, take to the Big Apple and its Grand Slam tournament. Put those two types at opposite ends of a court at Flushing Meadows and watch what can happen: Halep made a quick-as-can-be exit Monday, overwhelmed by the power-based game of Kanepi 6-2, 6-4 to become t

NEW YORK — Simona Halep made history in the first match ever on the new Louis Armstrong Stadium at the US Open. And not in a good way. With the tournament barely two hours old, the world No. 1 and top seed at the Open was sent packing by the powerful Estonian Kaia Kanepi, 6-2, 6-4, marking the first time ever that the No. 1 seed has lost in the first round. Stunner on Louis Armstrong Stadium! Halep has played in 34 Grand Slam tournaments and lost in the first round in 12 of them, according to the New York Times. As the No. 2 seed last year, Halep also lost in the first round last year to Maria Sharapova. "It just changes the top half of the draw big time," ESPN's Mary Jo Fernandez said on air. Indeed, No. 17 seed Serena Williams, who is set to play Monday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium, was drawn to play Halep in the fourth round.
Simona Halep has become the first No. 1-seeded woman to lose in first round of the U.S. Open in the professional era. Halep won the French Open in June for her first Grand Slam title and is assured of remaining at No. 1 after the U.S. Open, even with her first-round departure. She got off to a slow start at Roland Garros this year, too, dropping her opening set, also by a 6-2 score, but ended up pulling out the victory there and adding six more to lift the trophy. 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. Kanepi has shown the occasional ability to grab significant results, including a run to the qu
Simona Halep has been beaten in the first round of the U.S Open for a second consecutive year ( Getty ). This has been a memorable year for Simona Halep, but the world No 1’s Grand Slam season ended here on Monday with defeat in her opening match at the US Open. Smashing her racket and thumping balls away in anger, Halep was a picture of frustration as she was beaten 6-2, 6-4 in just 75 minutes by Kaia Kanepi, the world No 44. It was a second successive first-round exit here for Halep following her defeat to Maria Sharapova 12 months ago, but this was a much greater surprise. Sharapova, who was rebuilding her world ranking following her 15-month suspension for a drugs offence, had beaten Halep in all six of their previous meetings, whereas Kanepi had lost to the Romanian in their only other encounter.
