That's a tough start for all. Wouldn't be surprised if we are 1/3 out of those matches.

Jeevan-Jordan lost their match in the match tie-break against Americans ... After winning the first set their challenge fizzled out in next two.

Lee and Garcia-Lopez gave a walk-over to their opponents. I hope there no injury scare for Lee.

DiPu have just started their R1 match.

Terrible!! Garcia-Lopez lost his R1 singles earlier to Nishioka in straight sets, so I wonder whether he picked up an injury during that match. Very unfortunate end to our interest in this tournament.

Ranked 193 and 176 in doubles respectively, Bester and Polansky are not a pair DiPu should have struggled this hard to eek out a win. Anyway, I am happy that they won their opening round to setup a potential QF clash with Rajeev Ram and his South African partner, Raven Clasen.

Agree with Varma, surprised to see that they stretched to the match tie-break.

Bester/Polansky has won a total of 6 doubles titles in CHs and Futures as a team. I don't see why not? No doubles match is easy at the ATP level irrespective of the rankings as it happened with Kyrgios/Reid.

Next round should be interesting :goodluck:

DiPu play their QF against second seeded Rajeev Ram/RavenKlaasen tonight (Thursday).
Paes/Lu await the winner of the match between the Bryans and Querrey/Donaldson early today.
