Carlos Alcaraz only made a brief appearance at the ATP 500 tournament in Astana. The Spaniard, who played his first ATP Tour tournament in Kazakhstan as the world number one, lost to Belgium’s David Goffin 5:7 3:6 in the first round on Tuesday. An early exit also came for Casper Rudd, the number one seed in Tokyo.

19-year-old Alcaraz was the youngest player to become world number one by winning the US Open, and since then he has played only twice in the Davis Cup. There he defeated Korea’s Kwon Soon-woo and lost to Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime.

On the other hand, Goffin, who competed for the title of “lucky loser” after the cancellation of the young Danish star Holger Ron, was able to celebrate his third victory over the current number one, twice he did so against Rafael Nadal (Masters 2017 and ATP Cup 2020). ). In November 2017, Goffin ranked 7th in the world and is currently ranked 66th.

Rod must bow to Munnar

Rudd, the final opponent of Alcaraz in New York, is also no longer in the ATP 500 tournament in Tokyo. The number three in the world lost to Spain’s Jaume Munnar (ATP No. 58) 3: 6 3: 6.

The Norwegian top seed lost to Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka in the quarter-finals in Seoul last week and then had to relinquish his second place in the world rankings to Nadal.
