Ymer shocks Altmaier


Swede Elias Ymer took a real scalp when he defeated 62-ranked German Daniel Altmaier 64 76 (5) in the first round.

The match stood and weighed until the marathon game came at the five all where home crowd favourite Ymer had no less than five break balls but the German resisted and the set had to be decided in tie-break.

Even there, it was Altmaier who led the game and went to a 5-1 lead before Elias turned and took 6 straight points and received the massive cheers of the audience.
