Re: Aussies in Challengers and Futures
QFinal results at Sydney Futures #1 (at Homebush)
(3) Adam Feeney beats Uchiyama in a tight two-setter, 75, 76(4), after giving up a break lead in each set;
(4) Alex Bolt drops first set 67(6), then sneaks through second set 76(3), before getting on with the job and finishing off Van Peperzeel 61 in the 3rd set
(2) Upset of the day for Jordan Thompson with a no non-sense 63, 63 win over No.2 seed Rubin Statham. Too hot for the Kiwi after a gruelling match yesterday.
(1) Greg Jones plays his "get-out-of-jail" card against Blake Mott, dropping the first set 46, rallying to win the second set 63, then going behind 1-4 with a single break, recovering to 4-4, then holding serve at 4-5 and 5-6 to get to the tie-break, then going an early mini-break down but gets it back to change ends at 3-3, trailed on serve at 4-5 but hung tough to get to 6-5 and converts the first mp to win the tb 7-5, the set 76, and a hard fought, closely contested match 46 63 76(5).
Not sure how the players coped with the heat. Mott had an injury time out after Jones broke him in the 2nd set and led 3-0, but not sure what that was for.
Semis tomorrow in cooler weather...
