Good start to the year for Smethy in futures . Lost in 3 sets in the first British futures of the year to Grigelis in the final . Not that hard to take as Grigelis is top 250 and has won 10 of 12 finals at this level . Then won in Sunderland ( Grigelis pulled out early on in tournement ) and Smethurst downed rice 6-3 '7-5 in the final.
Lost in another British futures final . Olin retired 6-2 . 2-2 down in first round . Also had a walkover v cox . Lost to rice 7-5 , 3-6 , 6-4 . In the final. I think he did great as he may of been a bit rusty in final .
