Due to the heat and humidity at Flushing Meadows, the first round of play at the US Open saw a record number of participants retire from play. The second round isn’t shaping up much differently, as American Jack Sock, who was favored to win his match, found himself unable to proceed after collapsing. His retiring from play means he’s out of the tournament, and his opponent, Ruben Bemelmans, will proceed to the next round to take on French Open champ Stan Wawrinka

Here’s the clip of him collapsing:

The plague of retirements from the tournament can likely be chalked up to record temperatures in New York.  If you’re in attendance to check out the action at the US Open this week, make sure you keep cool and stay hydrated!
