Simona Halep defeats Camila Giorgi and advances to second round

The Romanian tennis player, who had to withdraw from the Cincinnati Tournament due to physical problems, beats Giorgi in the first round of the US Open.


Simona Halep got rid of the Italian Camila Giorgi without too many problems in two sets (4-6 and 6-7 (3)). The Romanian had to wait for the ninth game to get ahead of her rival and took advantage of the only break to take the first set. Already in the second, she managed to break Giorgi's serve again, but when everything indicated that she would take the match without having to go to the tie-break, the Italian raised up to two match points and forced the tiebreaker.

Already in the tie-break, the service breaks continued until reaching the final 3-7. Halep will face in the second round the Slovak Kristina Kucova, number 111 in the WTA ranking, who has won the American Ann Li in two sets (5-7 and 1-6) .
