 With this Mirza lost all the events in which she participated.

Meanwhile, 17-year old Indian, Yuki Bhambri entered the second round in the junior boys event.

He defeated American opponent Jordan Cox, 6-2, 6-1.

The junior world number one broke his rival twice in the first set and thrice in the second and only once he faced the threat of a break of serve.

Yuki is the favorite to win the junior title in New York having already won the Australian Open Juniors this year.
