QR1:
[WC] Sweeny def. Copil 7-6(3) 2-6 6-3 - I have to be brutally honest I do not know how Sweeny ended up with a QWC, but credit to him for taking advantage of a dreadful opponent...

Griekspoor def. [WC] Bourchier 7-6(6) 6-3 - Bourchier had 5 SPs in the first set, including 3 at triple BP up on Griekspoor's serve at *5-6...

Purcell vs Gaston has just started...

QR2:
Andrew Harris vs (2) Hugo Dellien
(WC) Dane Sweeny def. (4) Denis Kudla - Kudla has been withdrawn from the tournament due to testing positive for Covid, so Dane gets a walkover to QR3
(WC) Jason Kubler vs Sergiy Stakhovsky - winner plays Sweeny in QR3
(WC) Rinky Hijikata vs (11) Cedrik-Marcel Stebe
Bernard Tomic vs (WC) Tristan Schoolkate
(WC) John-Patrick Smith vs Tallon Griekspoor - winner plays Tomic/Schoolkate in QR3

Purcell def. Gaston 7-6(3) 4-6 6-3 in QR1, plays (3) Aslan Karatsev in QR2

8 wins in QR1 is definitely more than I expected

Copil was average but credit to Dane who dug hard. The wind made it tough also.
He got lucky to get to round 3 many would say but you create your own luck. Happy for him as he has openly battled depression so this is a big breakthrough.

Great results overall. JP a quiet achiever who knows how to win in quallies and deserves more credit. Tomic fought hard so the media can suck it lol. Great by the others I never watched also

Bernard Tomic def. [WC] John-Patrick Smith 6-4 5-7 7-6(7)

Never thought I'd see the day where Tomic wins 3 consecutive 3-set matches, and 2 of them in final set breakers. Well done to him though
