Another first round loss this time on the clay for Conor with him going down 64 63 to Lojda. He is on the alt lists for Houston and Casablanca next week and then entered for the Athens Challenger the week after that.
Conor won his first round of Casablanca Qualies with a 64 36 63 victory over Ivan Navarro. Next up is Smethurst and then if he were to get through that he would take on the winner of Andrey Kuznetsov vs Millot.
Well Sorensen has come out of his short lived retirement and is currently playing in a futures event in Koeln, Germany. He is seeded 7th and won his 1st round match 6-3 6-3 against Swedish qualifier Markus Eriksson. Next up is another qualifier, Urzua-Rivera from Chile. Hope the back is feeling good and can play out the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, Niland is one win away from his first appearance in a main draw of a grand slam, he faces Mektic in the final round of qualifying later on today.
