the canadian Felix Auger-Aliassimeseeded sixth, experienced a debacle and fell to the American Maxime Cressy (6-7 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (9) and 7-6 (5)) and were left at Wimbledon in the first change.
The Canadian is a possible rival Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals, but he was hit in the first round and joined the list of gunners who were on the path of the Spaniards and no longer in the tournament, such as Sam Querreyremoved, and Marin Cilic and Matteo Berrettini infected with covid.
Despite connecting 28 aces and 64 wins, Auger-Aliassime lost the game by one break and two equal tie breaks. The Canadian beat Nadal at Hurlingham and is one of the favorites on his team. He also made it to the quarterfinals at Halle and at Roland Garros he reached the round of 16, where he pushed Nadal to five sets, something only three tennis players have achieved in the history of the Parisian tournament.
Cressy, who starred in one of the tournament’s great surprises, will face her compatriot Jack Sock in the second round, who beat Bernabé Zapata.
