(Reuters) - Australian Jordan Thompson put an end to local hope Noah Rubin's chances at the New York Open on Monday with a 6-7(7) 7-5 6-1 first-round victory after the Nassau County native was bothered by a sore shoulder late in the match.

In a battle of baseline specialists it was Rubin who was the sharper at the outset, grinding out a tight first set before errors began to pile up in the second.
