Lousy US Open start for Switzerland

Well fought, but in the end too inefficient to exploit: Alexander Ritschard in the 1st round of the US Open

The first day of the US Open ends with a clear round for the Swiss delegation. Three started, all three lost in the first round. After Stan Wawrinka, Alexander Ritschard and Jil Teichmann are also eliminated, but the degree of satisfaction should vary.

As expected, the qualifier Alexander Ritschard (ATP 186) loses to number 6 seeded Félix Auger-Aliassime 6: 3, 6: 4, 3: 6, 6: 3. As with his Grand Slam debut in Wimbledon against Stefanos Tsitsipas, he wins a set against a much higher-ranked opponent on one of the big courts, but is not efficient enough to create a surprise. While the Canadian uses half of his breakballs (4 out of 8), the 28-year-old from Zurich only uses two out of twelve.
