NEW YORK, NY, USA -The unseeded Aleksandra Krunic put together an inspired performance to record the biggest upset of the US Open so far, knocking out No.7 seed Johanna Konta in the first round. But she fell short of the expectations.
She joined another British player, Heather Watson who also lost in the first round.
Konta was one of eight players who could end the fortnight as world No. 1 but she became the first major casualty at Flushing Meadows in what was an incredibly disappointing defeat.
A delighted Krunic said at the end of the match: "I feel fantastic, I'm happy with the way I played and fought - she is an awesome player and I had to be at my best from the first point".
Krunic took advantage of some errors from the British number one to pull back level at 4-4 but then double-faulted for a fifth time to lift the pressure before Konta served out the set.

Edmund, who controlled the match from the back of the court, used his booming forehand to pummel Haase into submission and broke his opponent's serve on five occasions.
Britain's best hope of glory at the US Open, Johanna Konta, has crashed out of the Grand Slam in the first round.
Johannesburg-born Norrie, from Fort William, won a tight opening set on Court 14 on the tie-break before racing to a 6-1 score in the second when his opponent pulled out.
The British number two insisted ahead of the tournament that the sequence was simply coincidence rather than anything to do with the courts or the event.
