Yes, an impressive win earlier today for Jenson Brooksby over former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych in first-round action at the U.S. Open. The American defeated the Czech in four sets, 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, with some impressive hitting and controlled aggression from the baseline; the teenager also displayed an admirable temperament, especially after losing the second set. In the next round Brooksby will face the no. 17 seed, Nikoloz Basilasvili.

Brooksby is planning to enroll at Baylor in January. He will dominate college tennis if he enrolls. I mean dominate. That being said, I don't think he will enroll and will turn pro after the US open.
He’s going to play some Challengers during the autumn as an amateur and then decide. Being a Sacramento native, he has at least two of them he can be very comfortable getting to from home.

It's not ATP, but considering his attempt at the US Open men's draw going 5 sets against a pro, I'll be interested to see how that Svajda kid does with his wild card in the Boy's tournament. He drew the 4th seed in the first round, so he's going to have a bit of a test right off the bat.

Not a happy ending, going out 1R to Jonas Forejtek in straight sets.

I like Damm to take this. Rune struggled vs an American qualifier, taking a third set TB. My second favorite is #1 seed Shintaro Mochizuki.

I’m assuming they won the doubles, not the singes.

The real singles final will be Emilio Nava (USA) vs Jonas Forejtek (CZE).

Just a minor correction -he‘s still 16 years old.

Battling it out with Hanfmann now. He was 5-2 up in the first set at one point, 6-5 now.

Yes, after leading Yannick Hanfmann 5-2 in the first set of their second-round match in Seville earlier today, Carlos Alcaraz Garfia was pegged back to 6-6, but managed to win the ensuing tiebreak and one in the second set too for a 7-6(3), 7-6(4) victory. On Thursday the Spaniard plays his compatriot Pedro Martinez for a place in the quarter-finals.

Former teenager Alejandro Davidovich Fokina is also having a good run at this week's Challenger tournament in Seville where he has reached the quarter-finals and a match against the Belgian Kimmer Coppejans later today. This is the third week in a row that ADF has reached at least the quarter-finals of a Challenger. Two weeks ago he reached the semi-final in Mallorca before losing to the Finn Emil Ruusuvuori, while last week he got to the final of the Genoa Challenger where his opponent was the local hope Lorenzo Sonego.

Due to bad weather, the final in Genoa started late at night and finished around 1.30 am local time. The players split the first two sets and in the final set ADF had his chances, but was broken at 5-all before breaking back to force a tiebreak in which he led by 4 points to 0 and then 5 points to 3, both times with a serve to follow. However, Sonego fought back doggedly, not allowing the Spaniard to reach match point, and eventually took the tiebreak and the match 6-2, 4-6, 7-6(6).

I watched about 10 minutes of the Caruso match but stopped due to the poor lighting and sketchy streaming. The tennis wasn’t much better. ADF seems to be in a zone, losing the Genoa final last week in a heartbreak. He’s now 1-6 in finals so hopefully he can get to this one and cash.

An up-and-down performance earlier this evening from 17-year-old Jack Draper in first-round action at the Andy Murray Challenger, which is being held this week, indoors, in the latter's native city of Glasgow.

In the first set of his match against Altug Celikbilek of Turkey, Jack Draper led 3-1, 4-2 and 5-3, and served for the set in the next game but was broken after a very long game. In the tiebreak that ended the set the Turkish player led 4-1, but this time Draper came back and won it by 7 points to 5.

The second set was the reverse of the first as Celikbilek led 3-1 with a break, only for Draper to come back and lead 4-3. However, at 4-all the Englishman was broken before Celikbilek served out for the set. In the final set Celikbilek won four games in a row from 2-all to take it and the match, 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-2.

Two days into the week and nearly all the teens have been wiped out if this week's action. Kuhn at Glasgow, Tseng at Kaohsiung, and Jianu at Sibiu are all that's remaining. Kuhn has already advanced to R16, Tseng will attempt to duplicate that result facing #134 Go Saeda (JPN), and Jianu is also in R32 action against #177 Filip Horansky (SVK).

Several of the players wiped out did win R64 matches before bowing out in R32 action.

Lots of good action today, both positive and negative, but was just paying attention to the Roumane-Novak match, and very clutch performance at the end of that match. Novak had 2 match points at 6-5 in that 3rd set and Roumane reeled off 9 straight points to go up 5-0 in the tiebreaker eventually closing it out.

Next match up, it's Sinners rejoice time!!!

And I thought Novak was taking time off to nurse that bad left shoulder! :-D Instead, he’s bowing to teenagers!

So, the two teens in action at Orleans, Roumane and Sinner, both won their 2nd round matches to advance, Roumane after winning yesterday in a 1st rounder. Roumane overcame a man ranked 300 places higher than him in three sets (3-6 7-5 7-6). Sinner had a bit of a routine 7-6 6-2 win.

Brandon Nakashima won in convincing fashion, 6-3 6-3, over Martin Redlicki at Tiburon. Hugo Gaston of France defeated American Evan Song 3-6 6-4 6-4, as well.

Facundo Diaz Acosta beat Mariano Kestelboim in a three setter, 6-3 5-7 7-5 in Buenos Aires. 16th seeded Thiago Seyboth Wild also won in 4&4 at Buenos Aires.

Mixed bag at Florence. Lorenze Musetti cruised to a 6-4 7-6 victory over Benjamin Bonzi. Fellow 17 year old and compatriot, Giulio Zeppieri, was not as able to overcome his opponent, Elliot Benchetrit, falling in 4-6 4-6. Finally, 16 year old phenom, Carlos Alcaraz Garfia came out on fire, up 6-1 and 2-0, but failed to finish up that scorching start, falling 6-1 4-6 and 1-6.

All in all, great Tuesday of action. 2-0 at Orleans, 2-0 at Tiburon, 2-0 at Buenos Aires, and 1-2 at Florence for the teenage cohort.

Also a mixed bag at Buenos Aires you omitted (understandably BTW).

WC Facundo Diaz Acosta (18, ARG) won 1R in three sets and Thiago Seyboth Wild also won but (Q) Tomas Farjat (also 18, ARG) lost 1R.

Keep up the good work! Old stringytom started this project 102 plus pages ago and appreciates your synergy, despite being mocked with comments from the ignorant like, “it says a lot about this forum when Tom has the most “likes”.”
