Lloyd Harris disappointingly lost in straight sets to American wildcard Mackenzie McDonald who is ranked a lowly 192nd in the world.

Harris, now the 80th-ranked player in the ATP rankings, lost 7-6 (9/7), 6-1, 6-4 in a match which lasted a minute over two hours.

Despite the third round loss, it was the furthest 23-year-old Harris has progressed in a Grand Slam to date.

Lloyd Harris’ compatriot Kevin Anderson lost in the first round to Italian ninth-seed Matteo Berrettini.

Meanwhile, South African doubles ace Raven Klaasen missed the year’s opening Grand Slam due to Covid-19.
