  • Harrison just edges Bemelmans in Newport

    7/10/12 3:08 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Ryan Harrison just barely made it into the Newport second round with a rocky win over Belgian Ruben Bemelmans.

    Ryan Harrison (6) def. Ruben Bemelmans 7-6(8), 6-7(5), 7-5

    This was not a high-quality match from either player. The fact that Harrison managed to pull out the win in the end is a testament to the relative inexperience of Bemelmans, rather than Harrison's skill in closing out matches.

    There were seven breaks of serve in the three-set match, with a whopping 25 combined break points. Neither man played aggressively for a majority of the match; Harrison was fortunate to secure a break of serve at the tail-end of the third set to get the win.

    Michael Russell def. Donald Young (7) 1-6, 6-1, 6-4

    American Donald Young is now on a 12-match losing streak, adding another to his total today at the hands of American veteran Michael Russell.

    Young actually had a strong start; he completely stifled Russell in the first set, allowing his countryman just one game to take the lead.

    Unfortunately for the Young camp, he was not able to hold onto the momentum. Russell completely reversed the tide. Once Young started losing, he lost focus and it was Russell's turn to dish out a breadstick.

    The veteran earned another service break in the third set to snag the opening-round win.
