Thompson falls in five-set heartbreaker
Jordan Thompson's US Open ended on Wednesday in New York with a five-set defeat to Italy's Thomas Fabbiano.
John Millman is Australia’s last man standing at the US Open after Jordan Thompson exited the tournament with a sapping five-set second-round loss.
Thompson was unable to back up his first-round upset of 13th seed Jack Sock, blowing an early fifth-set lead in a 2-6 6-2 3-6 6-4 6-2 loss to Thomas Fabbiano.
Thompson’s exit follows Davis Cup teammate Nick Kyrgios’ shock 6-3 1-6 6-4 6-1 loss to Millman earlier on Thursday, leaving the pair with two weeks to rebound before Australia’s semifinal against Belgium in Brussels.
