American teenager Coco Gauff’s hopes of another dream Grand Slam run were ended in the US Open first round after a lacklustre performance in a defeat by 31st seed Anastasija Sevastova.
A second-set resurgence looked to put Gauff, 16, on track for victory against the Latvian but she lost 6-3 5-7 6-4.
World number 51 Gauff reached the third round at her home Grand Slam in 2019, soon after making Wimbledon’s last 16.
Meanwhile, top seed Karolina Pliskova and sixth seed Petra Kvitova advanced. (BBC)
