Boys: J3 Istanbul, Turkey, indoor hard (Week 47)


There has been a regular supply of tournaments in Istanbul during the autumn, and this week we are back up to a Grade 3. There was success in qualifying for 2 out of 3 Brits, but Joel Pierleoni narrowly missed out. The last time a Brit was paired with Bjorn Borg's son Will Nolan got the better of him in a Grade 2 (since then Leo has been given a number of wildcards for qualifying for M15 events in Sharm el Sheikh, with no joy, though he did take 5 games off former top tenner Ernests Gulbis at a Challenger earlier in the year)- it's Derrick Chen's turn to face him tomorrow.

R1 (L32)

Derrick Chen v (5) Leo Borg (SWE)

(Q) Anton Arzhankin (RUS) v (Q) Harry Rock

(WC) Birtan Duran (TUR) v (Q) Mattias Southcombe
