India's Sania Mirza begins her campaign in the US Open later on Tuesday with a 1st round outing vs Estonia's Kaia Kanepi.

The Hyderabad Hurricane, who on Monday jumped one place to be 27th on the latest WTA singles rankings, is seeded 26th in the season's last Grand Slam.

She will be facing 44th ranked Kanepi for the first time in her career.

The 20-year-old Indian is enjoying a good run, having won the doubles title at New Haven on Sunday.

Both Sania and Kanepi had made 3rd-round exits at Flushing Meadows last year.
