Reuters: Stefanos Tsitsipas and John Isner both fell in second-round upsets at the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday.
Hubert Hurkacz defeated world number five Tsitsipas 6-4 3-6 6-3 for the Pole’s fourth win over a top 10 opponent this year.
The crucial moment came with Tsitsipas facing a break point and trailing 4-3 in the third set.
Hurkacz hit a passing shot that got past the charging Tsitsipas but the Greek believed the shot was wide.
Tsitsipas was angry that he could not challenge the call since there was no Hawkeye review system available to the players on the outside court.
“It’s a joke! It’s a Masters 1000 event!” Tsitsipas yelled at the chair umpire.
Isner failed to convert any of his break point opportunities and his usually deadly serve didn’t quite fire as he fell 6-3 6-4 to Cristian Garin of Chile.
Garin will face Daniil Medvedev, who crushed Kyle Edmund 6-3 6-0 in their second-round match earlier in the day.
Second seeded Dominic Thiem, sixth seeded Karen Khachanov and Frenchman Gael Monfils all advanced to the round of 16 on Wednesday.
