Seeds 7 and 8 on Newport ground, Kevin Anderson and Jordan Thompson completed the first lap, while Steve Johnson did not.

Let’s go to the last ATP turf tournament of the season! Missed from the calendar last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Newport Championships, where the Tennis Hall of Fame is located, began on Monday. He saw two seeds advancing to the second round. Starting with Australian Jordan Thompson (No. 7), who only spent 56 minutes on the court as he took advantage of Cedric Marcel Stipe (139) being dumped at 5-4 in the first set. Wild card recipient Kevin Anderson (#8), who defeated Ilya Marchenko (156) 7-5, 6-3 at 1h32 after sending 16 aces and saving five break points that earned his opponent, also qualified. However, the tournament was already over for Steve Johnson, ranked No. 6 and 83 in the world, losing to Dennis Kudla (104): 7-6, 3-6, 6-4 in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Despite 13 aces, the Australian was broken four times, including three in the first set where he finally lost in the tiebreak (7-3).
