Loughborough CH R1 - Golding d. Marrai 6-3 6-4

18 year old British prospect Oliver Golding today defeated Italian Matteo Marrai after having been granted a wildcard entry into the Loughborough Challenger tournament. In beating Marrai, who is ranked 482 places above him, Golding served 19 aces and won 35/36 points on first serve. He converted 2/3 break points, also saving the two he faced on his own serve.

In the 2nd round he'll face German Peter Torebko, who yesterday defeated British No.2 James Ward in three sets.

Golding, a former Junior World No.2, won the 2011 US Open Boy's Singles title after beating No.1 seed Jiří Veselý in the final and will be hoping to emulate this kind of success in the seniors now that he's turned professional.

Good win for Oliver, did what was expected, and his next round is also winnable. Winning the title would be a huge accomplishment but getting some wins under his belt should definitely help boost his confidence in his transition to the senior tour.

Nice work!

7pts in the bag, and that is worth a rise of 100-ish places if I recall correctly. Let's see what he can do against Torebko.

Every point will do nicely. The stats indicate a solid, relatively comfortable match. Oliver can take on Torebko without much pressure on his shoulders, especially if he continues to impress with that smooth serving of his.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

I was watching Ward-Torebko on live scoring and Torebko served 22 aces in the match. Considering that Torebko and Golding have served a combined total of 41 aces in the 1st round you'd expect the next match to have some big serving! Fingers crossed Oli will prevail...

Marrai is nothing special, this win means nothing.
Liam Broady is better than Silvering.
