New York (AP) – After a clear defeat to world number one Novak Djokovic, Jan-Lennard Struff missed the last sixteen at the US Open.
The 30-year-old tennis professional from Warstein had to admit defeat to the three-year-old Serbian 3: 6, 3: 6, 1: 6 on Friday (local time) and suffered the fifth defeat in the fifth comparison. After only 1:43 hours of play, Djokovic won the first game of the night session.
Last week, Djokovic had already won the quarter-finals of the Masters tournament that had moved from Cincinnati to New York against Struff. After his 26th victory, Djokovic now takes on Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta.
