Crowd favorite brown and unlucky stebe fail

Crowd favorite dustin brown was eliminated from the us open with almost no chance, unlucky cedrik-marcel stebe was once again stopped by his loaded body.

The day after the elimination of top talent alexander zverev, the grand slam tournament is also over for two other german tennis pros after the second round. The 32-year-old brown did not have enough to offer the spanish eleventh seed roberto bautista agut in a 1:6, 3:6, 6:7 (3:7) victory in new york on thursday.

Stebe, who has been injured for years, also failed in his 6:4, 4:6, 0:6, 1:6 against damir dzumhur from bosnia-herzegovina because of his pinching muscle and his mudiness. "Of course, it’s my own fault if my body can’t take it anymore," said the qualifier from vaihingen. "That makes me sad. It is a pity, I could have won it if I had been fit."Instead of performing again on saturday at the flushing meadows facility, stebe is leaving. Julia gorges and mischa zverev will not play until friday for a place in the eighth finals.

Brown, the rasta-haired tennis player, will always be known for his unconventional playing style and for the fact that he once defeated tennis celebrities at wimbledon in rafael nadal and lleyton hewitt. But his lobs, placed volleys and some whipped groundstrokes were not enough against spanish bautista agut. Brown came back from 2:5 down in the third set, but in the tiebreak he had to concede the victory to the spaniard.

When the player from lower saxony was ranked 12th, stebe had already explained his problems with a red head. "The hoof flexor has started to pinch. At some point also the mudigkeit came to it. Then I had the feeling that nothing was going right," said the 26-year-old. Three rounds in the qualification and the participation in the fourth and final grand slam tournament of the season were nevertheless a success for him.

The swabian described his four-set win over nicolas kicker from argentina as "one of the roughest days" in his career. After the stress of the day before he proved the necessary patience in the first set against dzumhur. But in sets three and four, stebe seemed to move only limitedly and, at 0:5 in the third set, called for medical help on the court. Also afterwards he could not offer any more paroli to his fitter opponent.

Stebe had been struggling with injuries for four years until the end of 2016. "I was partially destroyed," the former number 71 told the world. "If i had hurt myself again, i probably wouldn’t have gone on."Problems with the hoof flexor, the lumbar spine, a pubic tendinitis, a stress fracture and an operation on the groin – stebe had to put up with all that. "You could only shake your head at what happened one after the other," said davis cup team manager michael kohlmann.
