The former “Federer’s trainee” upset world No. 7 Stefanos Tsitsipas, 25, of Greece, in the main draw of the U.S. Open for the first time.

World No. 128 Dominik Stryker (21, Switzerland) defeated Tsitsipas 3-2 (7-5, 6-7, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3) in the second round of the men’s singles competition on Aug. 31. It was the first time Stricker defeated a player ranked in the top 10 in the world. Stricker was down 3-5 in the fourth set, but he battled back to force a tiebreak to take the match to a fifth and final set, eventually advancing to the third round of the tournament. This is the first time that Stricker has reached the third round of a major.

“I’m overwhelmed, I’m speechless,” said Stricker after the victory. It gives me a lot of confidence to have played a long, high-level match against a top-ranked player. I have higher expectations for myself,” she said. “I’m also more serious off the court these days. I’m more professional than I used to be,” she said. 성인웹툰 “I also watch what I eat, so I rarely eat cookies or chocolate. I think it definitely helps when you’re playing a long match like today.” The match lasted four hours and four minutes.

World No. 5 Kasper Lund (25-NOR) also packed it in on the day, falling 2-3 (4-6, 7-5, 2-6, 6-0, 2-6) to Zhang Zhizhen (27-China-67).
