Sebastian Baez Upsets Borna Coric (Again!) to Reach Second Round of US Open

Sebastian Baez has notched a second consecutive win against Borna Coric.

The 22-year-old Argentine professional tennis player defeated Coric, the No 27 seed, 7-5, 7-5, 6-1 on Tuesday to advance to the second round of the US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York.

Sebastian Baez,

Just days ago, Baez and Coric played an epic three-set match in the semifinals of the Winston-Salem Open, with the Argentinian claiming the match in three hours, 19 minutes by way of third set tiebreak.

Baez went on to win the title, his second in a row.

Now, meeting for the second time in three days, Baez has yet again upset his higher ranked opponent, this time going about his business seamlessly to keep his 11-match win-streak alive.

After two tight sets, which again saw Baez go up breaks and fail to hold on to his leads, the world No 32 ran away with the third set, 6-1.

Baez will play Brazilian qualifier Felipe Meligeni Alves next.
