No. 6 seed Auger-Aliassime knocked out of Wimbledon in 1st round
Sixth-seeded Felix Auger-Aliassime is out of Wimbledon in the first round. He’s the highest men’s seed to be eliminated so far.
The Canadian lost to Maxime Cressy of the United States 6-7 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (9), 7-6 (5).
The 21-year-old Auger-Aliassime was a quarterfinalist last year for his best result at the All England Club.
Cressy came into Wimbledon in good form, having been runner-up to Taylor Fritz at the grass-court Eastbourne tournament last weekend.
