Day 1 of the tournament is currently in progress, but there was a major upset today from Kai Kanepi who took out the French Open Champion and World NO.1 female Simona Halep in straight sets. Kanepi is a dangerous opponent who has been to 6 major quarterfinals, and today her first strike tennis and her ability to overpower Halep was so impressive as well as her composure in closing it out 6-2 6-4. As for Halep, it has been a terrific summer and a tremendous year starting with two major finals. Once again, it shows that other than Serena, the top players are fragile and that the rankings are truly just a number.
