    Season II Manta Open
    PTA CHALLENGER TOUR - 1st Round - Manta, Ecuador - Hard

    • Top seed Ishan Naranghas made a winning start to his tournament in Manta with a three-set win over England's Scott Whitehouse. It looked easy for Narang in the first set which he took 6-1, but the left-handed Brit fought back well to ensure the match would go to a deciding third set with some good serving and crafty volleying. Neither man faltered on serve until 5-5 in the third before Narang finally shot clear to secure a 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 win. He now meets World No. 394 Michael Chalá who beat fellow local wildcard Wilson Silva 6-4, 6-1.


    • The other CWLander in action was young qualifier Morgan Burridge. Drawn against World No. 134 Néstor Moreno, Burridge acquitted himself well despite being unable to pick up a victory. The local player took the first set 6-2, but had it tougher in the second as he let a 5-3 lead slip and was forced to win the match in a tiebreaker. He did that well - storming to victory 6-2, 7-6(0).


    • Seeded players out: None.

    Not a bad effort by Burridge, should become good someday.

    Season II MercedesCup
    PTA 250 - 1st Round - Stuttgart, Germany - Clay

    • Fourth seed Juan Moreno has made a successful return to the PTA tour with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 win over Roland Garros quarter finalist Jean-Christophe Genghini. Moreno, now ranked No. 27 in the world, hasn't played since suffering a hip injury shortly after Indian Wells and next meets local Alex Peters.


    • Seeded players out: Antonio Bachunelli [3]; Javier Villaneuva [6]; Becker Haas [7].

    Season II Swedish Open
    PTA 250 - 1st Round - Båstad, Sweden - Clay

    • Third seed Jojo Mustard has come through a potentially tricky first round match against compatriot Brett Read comfortably with a straight sets win. Read, a Roland Garros quarter finalist, was roundly expected to cause the World No. 16 difficulties but struggled early as he went down a double break to be 0-3. He fought back well to return the set to service with his second break for 4-4, but was broken for a third time as Mustard attacked his second serve with a big forehand down the line for a 5-4 lead. The third seed served the set out 6-4, and again broke Read's lacklustre serve early in the second. This time he didn't let go of his early lead, and cruised into the second round 6-4, 6-2. The impressive win sets up a meeting with World No. 87 Julian Day after the American came from a set down to beat Christopher Durand 1-6, 6-4, 6-1.


    • Second seed Heath Davis was also able to take a victory in his first round match against Emelio Cobos. While clay is his weakest surface, the Wimbledon runner-up was far too good for the World No. 94 as he overcame an indifferent start to storm into the second round. Level at 3-3 having saved two break points, Davis took nine of the next ten games to blow the Argentinian player off the court 6-3, 6-1. After that start he now plays wildcard entrant Henrikk Henrikkson after the Swede beat José Navarro 7-6(8), 3-6, 7-5.


    • In a re-match of their Davis Cup clash just days ago, local player Björn Donaldson has snared one of the biggest wins of his career with a three-set win over top seed Radivoj Daneu. Daneu won their previous meeting 6-4, 7-5, 6-1 to help set up Serbia's 3-2 victory over the Swedes, but Donaldson took his revenge on his home soil this time with a 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-3 win.


    • Seeded players out: Radivoj Daneu [1]; Tiago Matías [8].

    Season II Manta Open
    PTA CHALLENGER TOUR - 2nd Round - Manta, Ecuador - Hard

    • Top seed Ishan Narang had no trouble advancing through his second round meeting with little known local Michael Chalá after an impressive 6-0, 6-2 win. Chalá was clearly out of his depth against a top hundred ranked opponent and offered little by way of resistance as Narang barely made it out of first in a dominant display. After a disappointing week in Newport last week, Narang has recovered well in South America with his serve returning to where it was during a successful grass swing in June. His straight sets win sets up a meeting with seventh seed David Lebègue of France after he repeated Narang's scoreline 6-0, 6-2 against Alex Rojas.


    • Seeded players out: Haiku Morkel [2]; Oscar Highsmith [4]; Akihiko Veno [8].

    PTA 250 - 2nd Round - Stuttgart, Germany - Clay

    • Fourth seed Juan Moreno was given confirmation that his return from a hip injury will not be all plain sailing after the Argentinian No. 1 was bested in straight sets by Alex Peters. Despite a gutsy win on Monday, Moreno's movement was limited against the local hope and he obviously hadn't recovered completely from his return victory. Peters was too good in the end and advanced to the quarter finals 6-1, 6-4.

    Season II Swedish Open
    PTA 250 - 2nd Round - Båstad, Sweden - Clay

    • After coming through with a big win in the second round, Heath Davis will tomorrow face his first real test in Sweden after booking a quarterfinal meeting with sixth seed Carlo Amato. Davis had no troubles beating wildcard entrant Henrikk Henrikkson overnight as the Swede was put to the sword by the second seed who didn't need to play his best tennis. Davis was content to break early in both sets and coast to victory in a drab affair; conserving his energy with a 6-3, 6-2 win before Friday's meeting with Amato. The sixth seed, who made the final of the Swedish Open last year, proved irresistible as he crushed Johan Ortiz 6-1, 6-3.


    • Joining Heef in the quarters is doubles partner Jojo Mustard. The third seed also faced a big underdog in his second round match, and Mustard took no prisoners as he dealt Julian Day a comprehensive thrashing. Day managed just three games - all on serve - as a clinical Mustard stamped his authority on a top half where he is the highest ranked player left. His 6-2, 6-1 win sets up a meeting with seventh seed Sergio Joaquín after the Spaniard beat Yves Parmentier in an entertaining 6-4, 6-7(4), 6-1 affair.

    Hmmm. I think Amato might have too much for me on this surface. Been looking good so far though.

    Good to see Mustard making a statement after a disappointing Wimbledon.
