Konta's packing her bags after US Open exit


Britain's Johanna Konta became the first high profile casualty of the US Open when she crashed out in the first round at the hands of Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic, 4-6 6-3 6-4.

The World No.7 made only 45% of her first serves against Krunic, ranked 78th in the world, with the eastern European showing her grit to come from a set down to triumph in the Big Apple.

Fellow British player Heather Watson is also out of the final Grand Slam of the year, but in the men's singles Kyle Edmund and debut boy Cameron Norrie are through to the second round.
