Okutoyi bows out of the US Open.


Tennis star Angela Okutoyi’s hopes of progressing to the quarter finals at the US Open were on Monday night shattered, after losing 2-1 to her opponent Taylah Preston.

The Kenyan sensation recovered from the 6-2 first set defeat to win the second set 7-6, but could not contain the pressure from the Australian and suffered another 6-1 loss.

Okutoyi had progressed into the second round, after edging out Germany’s Carolina Kuhl by straight sets in the first round.

Okutoyi now switches her focus to the doubles where she will once again team up with Netherlands’ Rose Marie Nijkamp and will face the pair of Qavia Lopez and Johanne Christine in the first round.

The duo have partnered before and were fortunate to win the Wimbledon Doubles title last month, making history by becoming the first ever Kenyan grand slam winner.
