In 2020, Andy Murray turned out to be better than the American in the first round of the Western & Southern Open competition (it was moved from Cincinnati to New York). On Tuesday evening, Frances Tiafoe relived that failure. The former leader of the ATP rankings had his chance. In the tenth game, he missed three fixed balls and lost after breaking the tie. However, in the second game, the US representative quickly took advantage of two advances and finally won 7:6 (4), 6:3.

On the plus side, I’ve been moving and serving well, but my game levels go up and down. There are times during matches when I play well and then I make mistakes or I miss my comeback. I’d like to avoid that, Murray, quoted by atptour.com, said.

Tiafoe tied the Briton and scored in the third round. His opponent on Wednesday will be Brazilian Thiago Monteiro, who beat American newcomer Eduardo Nava 7:5, 6:1.

Pablo Carreno had problems getting into the third round. The Spaniard finally defeated the Korean Soon Woo Kwon 6:3, 3:6, 6:4. His next opponent will be Germany’s Dominic Kupfer. Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz also qualified for the 1/8 finals by defeating Australian Alexei Popyrin 6:7 (9), 6:1, 7:6 (1) after a three-set match.

Top seed Daniel Evans and Marton Fukowicz will also compete for the quarter-finals. The British turned the tide of the confrontation with Lucas Boye, and he will meet the veteran Frenchman Richard Gasquet. On the other hand, the Hungarian was better than Japan’s Yosuke Watanuki and will face Alcaraz on Wednesday. German Jan-Lennard Struff, Frenchman Benoit Pierre and Pierre Higgs Herbert, Belarusian Elga Iwashka (defeating Marina Silesia), Finn Emil Rossovoori, Australian Max Purcell, Swede Mikael Ymir and American Marcus Giron also won the promotion. To the 1/8 finals.
