What's with everyone posting match results here today minutes after they happen? :-D

Anyway, Halep has never been good at the US Open. Nothing new here.
Not good and losing in the first round by a qualifier are two different things, especially since she won citi open which noone will remember now.

What a display of WTA competence. Wow!

WTA is like me and my friends playing ping pong for the first time in our lives and starting to play tournaments against each other without having any experience. No consistency whatsoever. They aren't professionals yet they keep asking for equal pay. Give me a break.

I don't know about that, but the issue with the balls everyone has finally started talking about this year, I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with it. Though, as has been pointed out, she did win in Canada this year playing with them. Maybe she just hates New York.

Blame the balls. that us open Regular duty ball is super light. and other girl was hard Flat ball hitter and Halep didn't have enough time to setup and hit accurately. it is the Balls, so many WTA women have complained leading up to the Open.
