Israel’s Sela sent packing in first round

Israel’s one and only representative in the singles tournaments at the US Open was sent packing in the first day of action in New York on Monday, with Dudi Sela falling 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay.

Sela, ranked No. 104 in the world, was broken twice in the first set, but tied the match after holding his serve throughout the second set.

The Israeli’s failure to convert even one of his six break-point opportunities in the third set proved costly, with Cuevas (40) opening a crucial lead before racing ahead in the fourth set.
