Re: Christian Harrison
Though Christian lost in qualifying for the last two futures, I had a feeling he was starting to play better, based on the fact that he beat some very solid players, like Chris Kearney. Well today he validated my feeling at least a little bit.
He beat Rudolf Siwy 6-2 5-7 6-3. Siwy might be in bad form, but he is a decent player that made a futures final pretty recently and won by retirement over Rajeev Ram earlier this year. He also played Donald Young in a close match in the next round of that tournament(Indian Wells Qualifying). So I would say a pretty positive result for Christian. Next up is either his good friend and 7 seed Mike Venus or his fellow American youngster Dennis Novikov. BTW, he is also playing doubles with Venus and they won their first round.
