Cristian Garin (19 ° in the ATP ranking) had a hard fall against the Swiss Henri Laaksonen (130 °), by sets of 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 and 6-4 and, in this way, he could not access the third wheel for the first time at the United States Open.
For the Chilean it is a step backwards. He started the game showing a great level that was declining as the minutes passed, despite the fact that in the second set he had a comeback of those that escaped him in the tiebreak.
From then on the outlook darkened greatly for Garin. In a third set full of frustrations and shocks with his racket, the Swiss maintained the regularity, took advantage of the little consistency of the Chilean, broke him again and again towards the end to take the match.
The first Chilean racket could not extend its victories in cement to two consecutive games, and said goodbye to the last Grand Slam of the year in the second round.
Now he will join to play the Davis Cup against Slovakia, representing Chile during September 17 and 18 in Bratislava, in search of access to the World Group playoffs.
