Pliskova, first seed, won 6-4 and 6-0 against Kalinina. Kvitova (6th), to Begu by 6-3 and 6-2. And Kerber (17th) could with Tomljanovic (double 6-4). Sevastova fired Gauff (6-3, 5-7 and 6-4).


Good start to the tournament for some of the US Open favorites. The first, Karolina Pliskova, Petra Kvitova (6th) and Angelique Kerber (17th) solved with comfortable triumphs their premiere on the first day of a very open table due to absences.

The earliest was Kerber, who joined the US Grand Slam at the last minute and beat Australian Tomljanovic 6-4. The German, who last year left New York at the first change, was not wrong this time and beat a rival she had won for the first time at Roland Garros 2014. She will see them in the second round with her compatriot Friedsam . Afterwards, Pliskova gave a good account of the Ukrainian Kalinina, whom she beat by a clear 6-4 and 6-0. It was the second time that the Czech started a major as seed number one and did not fail. He will face a dangerous rival, Caroline Garcia. Her compatriot Kvitova did not do it either and she was able to quickly get rid of the Romanian Begu, whom she won 6-3 and 6-2. The US Open is the only Grand Slam in which he has failed to reach the semifinals. Her next opponent will be the Ukrainian Kozlova who beat the local Osuigwe 6-3, 7-5. As for other favorites, the Czech Marketa Vondrousova (12th) quickly beat the Belgian Minnen and will meet Belarusian Sasnovich.

Gauff, eliminated

The good star of the very young Coco Gauff in the Grand Slams was extinguished this Monday with her defeat in the first round against the Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, 31st favorite, who defeated the great American hope 6-3, 5-7 and 6 -4. Gauff reached the last 16 at Wimbledon and the third round in New York last year and this year he again stepped into the fourth in Australia. But this time she found an inspired rival who was not impressed by Coco's ability to come back and endured the pull to take the victory in a third set in which the encouragement of the public would have been very good for the American, who made 40 unforced errors on empty Louis Armstrong. Sevastova, who is good at this tournament (she reached at least the quarterfinals in three of her last four appearances) will face Ukraine's Kostyuk in the second round.

Results of the day.
