Another nice win for Henry against the number eight seed 6-7 6-4 6-1.

He plays a qualifier, Volodymyr Iakubenko, in the semis.

Wow, impressive from Henry - definitely stepping up these past few months.

Henry's efforts here will take him above Oliver Bonding in the rankings as top British boy - particularly impressive to be doing so on clay (he already has a J300 semi on hard earlier in the year). Withdrawals mean he is now in the Roland Garros main draw. Although as Nix says he plays a qualifier, the standard is such here that JWR75 had to qualify. Despite his name Kaylan isn't particularly tall (5 ft 11 according to the ATP website)

QF

Henry Searle d. (8) Kaylan Bigun (USA) 6-7(6) 6-4 6-1

Henry Searle v (Q) Volodymyr Iakubenko (UKR)

Well done Henry and always enjoy seeing a player get to number one in their category. Hope he and Oli continue to battle higher

Henry (as well as Charlie, Ella, Hannah K and Hep (who is in qualies)) all lined up to play in the big J500 in Milan next week. Good to see a good quota there ahead of the French.
