    Haase, Soeda advance in Chennai Seeds Robin Haase and Go Soeda advanced to the second round at the Aircel Chennai Open with wins on Monday evening.

    Robin Haase (6) def. Yuki Bhambri (WC) 7-5, 6-3

    For much of the first set, it seemed the Indian crowd would have something to cheer about. Countryman Yuki Bhambri managed to keep pace with the No. 6 seed Robin Haase through 5-5 in the first set. But a mental lapse from Bhambri at 5-6 gave Haase the first set, as the Dutchman broke to love.

    The second set was more routine for Haase. Bhambri was broken just once, but it was early in the set and he was unable to earn the break back with the single break point chance he earned against the No. 6 seed.

    Bhambri finished the match with eight aces to Haase's four.

    Go Soeda (8) def. Evgeny Donskoy 6-1, 6-2

    Japan's Go Soeda breezed through his first-round match against Russia's Evgeny Donskoy. The Russian, who enjoyed good success on the Challenger circuit is now 0-5 in main tour matches in 2012.

    Soeda converted on all four break-point chances he earned in the match, with a pair coming in the first set and another two in the second. Donskoy went 0 for 2 on break-point chances.

    The Japanese man moves into the second round, where he awaits the winner of Guillaume Rufin of France and his assigned qualifier.
