Interestingly, Ryan is not playing doubles with Christian but with Blake Davis. If I'm not mistaken, Davis is Ryan's childhood friend who gave him the nickname "Harry". Ryan plays Taro Daniel in the first round of Tallahassee.
Yes, and Christian is playing doubles with Michael Venus, who was also Ryan's partner back to 08~09. Christian has partnered with Michael Venus last week in Sarasota but didn't work and was defeated in qualification. (strangely Christian did not play single in Sarasota but only doubles)
As far as I know, Blake Davis is Tres Davis's younger brother and Brandon Davis's older brother. Blake was Ryan's doubles partner when they both played in junior. They together won the doubles title of the boys’ 14 USTA National Clay Court Championships.
So Happy Ryan won the Title today hopefully he can keep it up, still so things he can improve on in his game but that will come in time right now he need too get back into the mix and higher in the ranking, He Playing Madrid & Rome after this Challenger right ?

J. Donaldson | N. Rubin | S. Kozlov | B. Kozlov | F. Tiafoe | M. Mmoh | T. Harry Fritz | A. Fenty
I didn't see him in the entry lists of Rome & Madrid (his ranking is not high enough I think), but he's in the entry list of Nice, which is in the week before French Open. I guess he will do some training after Tally and go to Europe for Nice.
It started with one of my closest friends in the juniors, Blake Davis, who plays at Florida State right now. He started calling me it and it stuck. Travis Rettenmaier followed him, then Mardy and John, and now it’s caught on.
