Russell won his 1st Rd match at the Hall of Fame Tennis Tournament in Newport. He defeated #118 Illya Marchenko 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. He was leading 6-1, and geting ready to serve for a 4-2 lead when the rains came. When they returned, he lost the next six of seven games and looked to be in trouble but bounced back to take the third. He now faces #163 Alex Kuznetsov in the 2nd Rd. Russell leads the H2H 2-0. This is a great opportunity for Russell to get some ATP points and get his ranking up again.
