Wozniacki Shocked At US Open Exit

World number two and US Open second seed Caroline Wozniacki admitted her shock at losing to Lesia Tsurenko in the second round.

Following world number one Simona Halep’s first-round exit, the US Open has now lost its top two women’s seeds after Wozniacki went out to the Ukrainian, the world number 36, 6-4 6-2.

Danish star Wozniacki, who has reached the US Open final twice, said it was an unusual feeling to be knocked out at Flushing Meadows so early.

“She played the game I was supposed to play,” she said.

“This part of the season is usually a part of the season I really look forward to, one where I really play well.”

Meanwhile, fourth seed Angelique Kerber eventually saw off Sweden’s Johanna Larsson in three sets, winning 6-2 5-7 6-4, and she will face Dominika Cibulkova in the last 32, who beat Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei, also in three sets.

Elsewhere, Madison Keys, Petra Kvitova, Aliaksandra Sasnovich and Naomi Osaka all won to seal their passage into the next round.
