News Americas, FLUSHING, NY, Tues. Aug. 30, 2016: German-born Jamaican roots professional tennis player Dustin “Dreddy” Brown’s 2016 US Open run is over.
Brown failed to make it past the first round of the 2016 US Open last evening on Day 1 of the Open, marked by new stadiums, wider walkways, refurbished field courts and a retractable roof in the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Fifth seed Milos Raonic defeated Brown in the first round of the 2016 US Open in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
Raonic now books his place in the second round.
Brown, 31, however, had an entertaining opening rally, putting in some chops and a lob but it didn’t quite pay off.
Dozens of others are hoping that they have the stuff to string together seven wins over the course of the next two weeks, allowing them to stand alone at the end of the Flushing fortnight.
