Jarkko Nieminen and Mikhail Youzhny moved into the second round at the If Stockholm Open with opening-round wins on Monday.
Jarkko Nieminen (8) def. Tobias Kamke 6-3, 6-4
For a third time, Finland's Jarkko Nieminen defeated Tobias Kamke at the Stockholm Open. The German had his chances this time, but Nieminen was strong on the big points and it won the match for him.
Kamke earned himself eight break points, but Nieminen held him off on all but one of them. The Finn also earned a host of break points, nine in total, but he successfully converted three for the straight set win.
Mikhail Youzhny (6) def. Brian Baker 6-3, 6-1
Russia's Mikhail Youzhny got off to a good start at the Stockholm Open. American Brian Baker, who is struggling with his form at the moment, hardly put up a fight in this first-round encounter.
Baker was broken five times in the match and though Youzhny served at an anemic 54% for the match, the American only secured one break of serve.
Youzhny moves into the second round, where he will take on the winner of Gael Monfils and Swedish wild card Patrik Rosenholm.
