Sport: The 3rd-seeded Norwegian was beaten 6-1, 6-3 by qualifier Henry Bernet of Switzerland in a match that lasted just one hour and five minutes.

17-year-old Kjær is number four on the ITF world ranking for juniors and has one of his goals for the year to win the junior class in a Grand Slam tournament.

In January, he reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open.

Kjær will also participate in the doubles tournament for juniors. There, together with the Austrian Joel Schwärzler, he is the top seed.
