Holger Rune surprised Roberto Carballes Baena in the first round of the US Open

First clap of thunder at the US Open. 4-seeded Holger Rune was knocked out in four sets (6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2) by Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena, ranked 63rd in the world, in the first round on Monday. Despite a start in the second set, he was dominated by his opponent and committed many unforced errors (41).

Rune (20) stayed in the quarterfinals of Roland-Garros and then Wimbledon but had completely missed his American tour (eliminated as soon as he competed in the competition in Canada and then Cincinnati). At 30, Roberto Carballes Baena has claimed the best win of his career and will face the winner of the match between Aslan Karatsev and Jiri Lehecka in the next round.
