The Swiss Stan Wawrinka (ATP 101) has the Bulgarian eighth seed Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 8) eliminated in the first round of the US Open, the last grand slam tournament of the season. It was 6-3, 6-2 and 7-5.
Wawrinka put in 2016, the tournament in the bag at Flushing Meadows. By knieperikelen he is, however, diminished to the 101e place in the ATP ranking.
In the second round will find the Swiss, the Frenchman Ugo Humbert (ATP 139), that the American Collin Altamirano (ATP 345) 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 defeated.
This year was Wawrinka in the first round of Wimbledon too strong for Dimitrov, and then in the second round to fall.
