Campbell's Championships news, Tuesday
NEWPORT, R.I. — Americans and top seeds Sam Querrey, Mardy Fish and Rajeev Ram were among the players to advance today when first round competition at the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships continued in Newport, R.I. Nicolas Mahut, who famously played in the longest match in tennis history last month, also advanced, following an 83-minute match in which he defeated Columbia’s Alejandro Falla, whose own Wimbledon match was a grueling 198-minute battle with Roger Federer. Querrey, who won his first grass-court title last month at Queen’s Club and was a finalist in Newport last summer, defeated countryman Jesse Levine in straight sets. In another all-American match up, Fish defeated Michael Russell. In today’s final Center Court match, defending champion Rajeev Ram overcame Spain’s Ivan Navarro.
The action continues tomorrow with Fish facing India’s Somdev Devvarman first on Center Court, followed by No. 1 seed Sam Querry versus Jamaican Dustin Brown. Nicolas Mahut returns to Center Court for the third match, when he will face Canada’s Frank Dancevic. Wednesday’s final match on Center Court will be an All-American contest between 18-year-old Ryan Harrison and 17-year-old Denis Kudla, who both received wild cards for the tournament.
Following are Tuesday’s results and the Order of Play for Wednesday, July 7.
