US Open 2010 (Latest News Update)

NEW YORK -- Jelena Jankovic needed a comeback to hold off an 18-year-old and Svetlana Kuznetsova had to go three sets to edge out an opponent nearing 40. Both did their job to avoid upsets Tuesday in the first round of the U.S. Open.

The fourth-seeded Jankovic, a finalist at Flushing Meadows in 2008, overcame a late break in the third set to defeat Simona Halep of Romania 4-6, 6-4, 7-5.

Earlier, 11th-seeded Kuznetsova defeated 39-year-old Kimiko Date Krumm of Japan 6-2, 4-6, 6-1. Krumm, who turns 40 on Sept. 28, was trying to become the third-oldest woman to win a U.S. Open match since the Open era began in 1968.
