Schwartzman (9th) and Lajovic (18th), first favorites eliminated

Norrie came back against Schwartzman (3-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 and 7-5) and Gerasimov could with Lajovic (6-1, 4-6, 6-4 and 6-4). Shapovalov and Mannarino do not fail.


Diego Schwartzman, ninth seeded, and Dusan Lajovic, 18th, fell on Monday in the first round of the US Open to opponents theoretically affordable for them. Especially painful was the Argentine's defeat, which inexplicably complicated life against Briton Cameron Norrie (76th in the world) after winning the first two sets with some ease (6-3, 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 and 7-5). The Serbian, for his part, put up even less resistance against the Belarusian Egor Gerasimov (72nd), who beat him 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 and 6-4.

Schwartzman lost his strength and shot unforced errors to 81, with some pretty bad percentages on serve against an opponent who has taken his measure since he beat him last year in Acapulco. Lajovic lacked aggressiveness and was not very fine with his serves against a grown rival who placed 41 winners with 11 aces. Norrie will be seen in the second round with the Argentine Federico Coria and Gerasimov, with the Australian Jordan Thompson.

Zverev, Shapovalov and Mannarino, forward

Alexander Zverev found himself in a sizable brown when the draw for the draw paired with US Open and Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson. Caprices of fate and the low protected ranking of the South African, who was out for several months due to injury and stood up, but could not with the German (7-6 (2), 5-7, 6-3 and 7-5). After overcoming the difficult commitment in the war of direct aces (18 for him and 20 for Anderson), Zverev will also try to overcome, and it may be easier for him, the American guest Brandon Nakashima, although he could with a lot of solvency with the Italian Paolo Lorenzi (6-3, 6-2 and 7-6 (3)). Who did not disappoint the first time either was Denis Shapovalov (12th seed), who got rid of the American promise Sebastian Korda (6-4, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-2) and will cross with Kiatkowski or Kwon. The Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (32nd) also advanced, who beat the Italian Lorenzo Sonego 6-1, 6-4, 2-6 and 6-3 and will meet the local Jack Sock, who squeezed himself to win the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas by 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 4-6 and 7-6 (2) in a duel of tennis players in low hours.

Results of the day.
