Number one seeded Simona Halep of Romania chases down a return to Kaia Kanepi of Estonia during their 2018 US Open women's match August 27, 2018 in NY.
Playing in the first match at the rebuilt Louis Armstrong Stadium, Halep dropped her opening set against No. 44 Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-2 in 28 minutes.
