A new earthquake in the first Masters 1000 of the season, which has come full of surprises. Kyrgios, without going any further, entered the tournament by invitation, since he currently ranks 132nd in the ATP ranking. His case, however, must be analyzed going beyond any classification. On stage, with his eccentric and well-known attitude, and on sports. As an example, the path of him in the United States. He has not yet conceded a set, saving all nine balls from break that he has had to face, and he shows off a formidable form. The Argentines Sebastián Báez (6-4,6-0) and Federico Delbonis (double 6-2), along with Casper Ruud, number 8 in the world, his victims. He had not played since the Australian Open, where he fell to Daniil Medvedev and won the doubles tournament teaming up with Thanasi Kokkinakis, acclaimed local pair, and will now contest their first ATP Tour quarterfinals since 2019, when they won in Washington. In a Masters 1000, the drought had been going on since 2017, when she reached the Cincinnati final.
Seven Top 10 eliminated
The Californian desert is showing no mercy to anyone. Not one of the best. Sinner’s withdrawal, moreover, continues to leave the tournament orphaned of the main names of the circuit in its last rounds. Alexander Zverev (3rd) and Felix Auger-Aliassime (9th) were the first members of the Top 10 in the world ranking to fall. The German stumbled in the second round against the American Tommy Paul 6-2, 4-6 and 7-6 (2); the Canadian, on the same day, could not with the Dutch Botic van de Zandschulp (7-6 (4), 6-7 (4) and 6-3). Only the first two pieces of the domino. Gael Monfils, with his particular Showknocked down the most valuable piece by eliminating Medvedev, with the loss of number one for the Russian playerJenson Brooksby, young local pride, dismounted Stefanos Tsitsipas (5th) and Kyrgios himself, closing a surprise third round, was in charge of blocking Ruud’s way.
