Carlos Alcaraz has surpassed Dominik Koepfer in the first round of the US Tennis Open. The Murcian had won the first set 6-2 and, in the sixth game of the second set, with 3-2 for the Spaniard, ‘break’ included, the German had to leave after spraining his left ankle in the first game of the match.

Koepfer received medical attention and the affected area was bandaged, but finally – and despite his commendable determination to continue on the track – he threw in the towel after only 60 minutes.

The Spanish tennis player will face in the next round the South African Lloyd Harris (177), who defeated the Argentine Guido Pella (203).
