2014 US Open 1st round: Erakovic upsets Kuznetsova

Sad anniversary for Svetlana Kuznetsova: ten years after winning the US Open, she lost to unheralded Kiwi player Marina Erakovic.
Ranked No. 9 at the time of her triumph and winner of only two WTA titles, she was considered as the tournament’s most surprising winner of the Open era. The sky was the limit for Svetlana, but despite winning another major (Roland Garros 2009) she never fulfilled the expectations.
