U.S. Open 2011 Results: Mardy Fish, Maria Sharapova Win; Wimbledon Champ Petra Kvitova Upset

The 2011 U.S. Open began on Monday in Flushing, N.Y., without much exciting expected to happen. Halfway through the first day, however, Maria Sharapova and Mardy Fish have already picked up victories and Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova was upset.

Fish, the top American competing at America’s Open, defeated Germany’s Tobias Kamke in straight sets with set scores of 6-2, 6-2 and 6-1. Fish made short work of his opponent, but was able to include a between-the-legs shot for those putting together highlight packages.

Sharapova, heading into the tournament ranked third, won her first round match-up as well. The 24-year-old Russian defeated England’s Heather Watson 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 in a match that looked like it might be the second straight opening-round upset in the women’s bracket.

The first upset came when Wimbledon winner Kvitova lost in straight sets to Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania. Kvitova was ranked fifth heading into the Open.

Stay tuned to this StoryStream for the remainder of the evening as there should be an update regarding the later match-ups which include both Roger Federer and Serena Williams.
