The US Open women’s defending champion was eliminated in the first round

Defending women’s title Emma Radocano has already bid farewell to the first round of the US Open in New York.

The British 11th seed was lost to 32-year-old Alizee Cornet, a 63-year-old consecutive Grand Slam champion and a record-breaking two-game winning streak. It’s not the French tennis player’s first big scalp at this year’s GS tournament, as she beat former world number one Simona Halep in Australia, while at Wimbledon she beat Poland’s Iga Switic, who currently tops the rankings.

19-year-old Radokano is now losing 2,000 points in the rankings, so after the US Open, he is expected to drop back down to around 80.

In the men’s category, four-time champion and 22-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal surprisingly lost the first match against Australian Rinke Hijikata, ranked 198th in the world, but then easily overturned it.
