11:03 am on 31 August 2011

None of the current women's tennis grand slam champions will be playing in the second round of the US Open in New York.

French Open champion, Li Na of China and Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of Russia, have both been beaten by unseeded Romanians in straight sets.

Last year's winner and current Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters is not defending her title because of illness.
