Ben snaps a three match losing streak and wins his first round in the Chinese challenger against an Indian player in three sets. He has the American Kevin Kim up next, Ben really needs to start living up to his seeding and get to at least the quarterfinals in these challenger events. He is defending a future title this week so he really needs to make a bit of a run in this tournament. I cannot find Ben on any entry lists for challenger or futures over the next few weeks, hopefully Ben enters some ATP qualifying tournaments because it wouldn't be a smart move for him to just miss an entire month on the tour.
