However, he still took care of business and advanced winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on center court.

On the same day, No. 5 seed Carlos Alcaraz rallied late and secured a five-set victory over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff.

The No. 10 seed, Emma Raducanu, had a fine first round on Monday. The 19-year-old advanced to the second round after defeating veteran Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. 8 seed Jessica Pegula got her first round match against Donna Vekic moved to Wednesday.
