Conversely, Brooksby's country Sock failed to advance in his match against Miomir Kecmanovic. The Serbian produced a fantastic display to escape with the 7-6(3) 6-4 victory, matching Sock's power from the baseline. His consistent play paid off, as the American was unable to maintain a rhythm after dropping the first set tiebreak. Kecmanovic will face seventh seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round.
