Osaka warns she's just getting started after beating Kerber

Angie Kerber loses opener to Naomi Osaka

Kerber then took the same court where she beat Pliskova for the title previous year and took another stinging defeat.

Defending champion Angelique Kerber was knocked-out of the US Open today by Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka as shock results continued in the women's singles draw.

Steady rain prompted US Open officials to cancel 55 singles matches and postpone completion of 11 others under way when showers halted play Tuesday on the NY hardcourts.

No other men's matches were completed on day two because of the rain which arrived after less than two hours' play and forced the cancellation of the schedule on the outside courts. Osaka played there previous year against the American Madison Keys and broke down in tears after she gave up a 5-1 lead in the final set to lose the match. "I feel like I know that I can play with the top players now, so I don't have to be as nervous as I was today".

"I'm still the same player and the same person", she said after the defeat.

"I think because it's a new situation", said the 29-year-old when asked why it was so hard for her to cement her place on top of the rankings.

"When were little, we would come to the U.S. Open every year, and even to practice, sometimes I would play here".

Using the same deadly weapons as Stosur, Ivanovic and Molik, Osaka crunched 14 forehand winners, broke Kerber four times and didn't drop serve once in a 65-minute mismatch. "I just tried to focus on what I could do to win the match, if that makes sense".

Latvia's 13th seed will next meet Romanian Sorana Cirstea, a 6-1 6-3 victor over Dutch qualifier Lesley Kerkove.

The match was her first career win over a top-10 player - Kerber is ranked No. 6 in the world and was seeded sixth in NY - but not her first experience in a match this big. "I went home and trained for two weeks, and I did a lot of fitness".

"I was always believing until the end that I could turn around the match, because I turn around a lot of matches", Kerber told a news conference. "But I think it's also really fun".

Rafael Nadal of Spain serves against Dusan Lajovic of Serbia at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in New York August 30, 2017.

At Grand Slam tournaments she is 6-4, including another first-round loss in May at the French Open, where she became that tournament's first No. 1 seed to lose so early.

"It took a while to get used to it".

"She said, 'I'm going to try a Japanese press conference, ' and now she does it often", Uchida said. "So to win a match on it felt really special". I'm assuming it had to do with the roof just holding all of that noise in.
