No. 2 seed Simona Halep of Romania crashed out of the Dongfeng Motors Wuhan Open here on Tuesday in a stunning 6-2, 6-1 loss to No. 31 seed Daria Kasatkina of Russia.

Kasatkina bagged 74 percent of her points on the first service and controlled the momentum on both serve and return. Halep made several unforced errors including several risky backhands that went straight into the net.

"Well, I think she played really well today, and everything went in the right way for her. But also wasn't my best day. It's tough. I didn't play for, like, a month. It's tough to come back and to play matches," Halep said in the post-match press conference.

"I cannot say that I felt the ball too well today, so it was a little bit tough day for my game, for me. Still I think that she played maybe her best game against me, and she deserved to win for sure," Halep added.

Kasatkina will meet Ekaterina Makarova in round three on Wednesday.
