Last Tuesday, Daniel Galan was unable to repeat the feat in 2022 and was eliminated from the US Open. The 27-year-old tennis player from Bumangui was defeated in straight sets (4-6, 2-6, 5-7) by British Daniel Evans, ranked 28th in the world. Now, the Colombian tennis player will seek to add a win in the doubles table, where he will join the Chinese Zhang Zhichen.
Galland had some good moments on Court No. 12 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, but was inaccurate in the most critical sections of the match. Last year, he reached the third round, so his early elimination will cost him several places in the ATP rankings. The man from Santander arrived in New York in 71st place, and currently appears in 82nd box.
This Thursday, Galland and Zezhen will face Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos, one of the strongest pairs in the ring. This duel will start at approximately 10:00 AM (Columbia time).

They are eager to return to the Davis Cup
One of Galan’s most important challenges at the end of the season will be the Davis Cup series between Colombia and Ukraine. After missing the clash against the United Kingdom due to injury, Bomango’s squad was called up again by captain Alejandro Falla.
This series, dedicated to the World Group 1, will take place between 14 and 15 September in Caspe (Georgia). It will have a special tone, because it will be the farewell of Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah. In addition to the “Colombian powerhouse”, former Cali tennis players Nicolas Mejia and Nicolas Barrientos were cited.
At NoticiasRCN.com we reached out to Xando Galán, Daniel’s brother, to find out the predictions of the Colombian tennis player, who this year reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon.
“It is always a source of pride to be able to represent Colombia.”
“For Daniel, it is always a pride to be able to represent the country in various competitions, unfortunately at the beginning of the year he suffered a serious injury that did not allow him to play in the series against the United Kingdom,” Xando began by saying.
He concluded: “It will be a special series, as you say, because some Colombian tennis stars have retired, and they brought great joy to our country. We hope that things will go well for Colombia.”
