Defending champion Angelique Kerber was knocked out in round one of the US Open by Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka.

The German sixth seed was overpowered by the 19-year-old world number 45, who won 6-3 6-1 under the roof on Arthur Ashe Stadium at Flushing Meadows.

It continues a disappointing year for 29-year-old Kerber, who has not won a title since her victory in New York 12 months ago.

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

"I know that I'm strong and I know that I will come back stronger, for sure."

I know that I will not be giving up like this. So for me, I will try to forget the match as soon as possible and look forward again."
