British teenager Jack Draper’s ATP Tour debut ended abruptly after he collapsed on court during his first-round match at the Miami Open against Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin on Thursday.
The sunny, humid and hot conditions on Court 2 appeared to have taken a toll on the 19-year-old wild card during the first set, which lasted 81 minutes.
With Kukushkin leading the set 6-5, Draper appeared distressed and he had his heart-rate checked courtside by medical staff before deciding to continue.
