New Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber crashed out of the Qatar Open Tuesday, in her first singles tournament since winning in Melbourne last month. No. 2 seed Simona Halep, the 2014 champion in Doha, lost to Russia's Elena Vesnina 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-1 .An out-of-sorts Kerber lost her second-round match – she received a first round bye – in straight sets 7-5, 6-1 to China's Zheng Saisai, who is ranked 71 places below the world No. 2 .The second set took just 28 minutes as Kerber's game collapsed.Kerber, who has not played any singles tournaments since beating Serena Williams in Melbourne on Jan. 30, grew increasingly exasperated with her form on a blustery night in Doha and at one point could be heard telling her coach Torben Beltz that she was tired and had no energy.
