Next up for Arthur is an ATP ranked Spaniard, while Felix takes on the eleventh seed, who is also ATP ranked but difficult to evaluate, as his impressive results, including a Grade A title, have come in Southern Africa

R2

(9) Arthur Fery v Mario Mansilla Diez (ESP)
Felix Gill v (11) Khololwam Montsi (RSA)

Felix looked absolutely on his last legs at towards the end of that third set.

Did well to come through - he was the more proactive player in the third but could easily have got himself into a really tense finish, and managed not to

The BBC have a nice long article about Arthur Féry, his French background, college plans and his tennis

www.bbc.com/sport/tennis/54289415

I would like to congratulate Leon Smith on agreeing with me () - he says that the thing that stands out about Arthur is that he has a "really smart tennis IQ"

Girls Doubles R1 (L32)

Matilda takes her first set 7-5. Good how Eurosport Player seems to have most, possibly all, of these matches.

And the second 6-1 smile

Only saw five minutes of that match but Matilda looking like someone who had a bit of Spanish sun over summer, at that new academy of hers

Looking forward to the round two matches of all three
