Rising Serbian star Miomir Kecmanovic leaves the Cincinnati Masters in good and positive spirits despite a tough round-of-16 loss suffered against recent Wimbledon semifinalist Roberto Bautista Agut. Bautista Agut, seeded at No.
11, took full advantage of qualifier world No. 58 Kecmanovic not being at his best as he lost just three games 6-1 6-2 en route to clinching a win in just 59 minutes of play. Kecmanovic, 19, earned a Cincinnati main draw debut after beating France's Antoine Hoang in the qualifying first round and Queen's champion Feliciano Lopez in the final round respectively.
The Serb then stunned world No. 21 Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Cincinnati first round, before picking up another surprise win in his following clash when he defeated No. 7 seed Alexander Zverev. "I was playing well the whole week.
I had good wins, I was dealing well with everything (throughout the week). Today, I was really exhausted. Anyways, I'm satisfied and hope I will be able to continue to play at this level," Kecmanovic exclusively told Sport Klub after losing to Bautista Agut.
