Loutit beaten in heartbreaker at US Open

Tuesday, 06 September 2022
A difficult defeat for Jack Loutit in the second round of the US Open junior singles.
He's been beaten by seventh seed Gonzalo Bueno of Peru in three sets after holding a considerable lead in the third set. 
There was only one break of serve in the opening set, when Loutit lost the eighth game with an unforced error.
However the 18-year-old from Auckland won the first five games on the second set and to eventually take it 6-3. 
Loutit started the third set well breaking Bueno's serve in the first game and the seventh game to be serving for the match at 5-2, but several unforced errors crept into his game and gave his opponent a hint of a comeback.
Unfortunately the Peruvian regathered his game and he came back into the match to win the contest 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 in just under two hours.
Later in the evening Loutit returned to the court teaming with Brit, Matthew Rank to beat Alexander Frusina and Alexander Razeghi 7-6(5), 3-6, 10-8 in the boys doubles first round.
