Lleyton Hewitt suffered his first straight-sets defeat at the US Open since 2006 as Tomas Berdych proved too strong for the Australian.


Berdych, the sixth seed, became the ninth active player to achieve 100 grand slam wins with the triumph, having comfortably beaten his opponent 6-3 6-4 6-3.


"I feel pretty good," Berdych told the ATP Tour's official website. "It's a tough opponent, a big challenge. The conditions were extremely tough today. The heat, the wind, and facing Lleyton for the first round, it's not what you really want to have. But otherwise, when you are prepared and feel good, that's a perfect start."


Berdych next faces Martin Klizan, who came from two sets down to defeat Steve Darcis 3-6 2-6 7-6(5) 7-5 6-4.
