Uchiyama Made to Fight by Lowly Ranked Opponent

Having recently qualified for Wimbledon for the second time in his career, the Japanese player has not matched his previous best on the senior tour this year, by reaching the second round of an event, having previously achieved the feat in Miami.

He was made to work hard for his win though by the American Alexander Sarkissian ranked a lowly 478th in the world.

The first set was dominated by serve, although Sarkissian had to save break points early. However, it was he who secured the only break of the set which he then served out to take.

Having taken the lead, Sarkissian’s form deserted him in the second set, which he lost to love, losing all three service games.

He tightened up in the third set which reverted to a service battle, but serving to stay in the match, he offered-up two match points, the second of which Uchiyama converted.

Johnson Beats Local Wildcard

Four-time tour winner Johnson had not been in the best of recent form prior to arriving in Los Cabos. So, if he could have hand-picked a first-round opponent to help boost his confidence, Gerardo Lopez Villasenor, a local wildcard, the world number 653, would have fitted the bill perfectly.

The first set was close though, with a break of serve on either side of the net meaning that a  tie-break was required to settle it.

Johnson though achieved the first mini-break, and then took the second of two set points.

The tide had turned. Whilst Johnson was secure on his own serve,, Lopez -Villasenor came under increasing pressure on his, He was broken in the third game of the second set,, and again four games later, and the contest was effectively over.
