2012 Farmers Classic Preview

Hey Tennis Friends!

The Farmers Classic, presented by Mercedes-Benz, qualifying began today!
I took a trip out to the Sycamore Courts at UCLA to check it out:

Here are the final scores from the matches that I featured with their current ATP World Tour rankings in parenthesis:

(#657) Bradley Klahn d. (#297) Ricardo Hocevar 6-2, 3-0 retired

(#558) Louk Sorensen d. (#154) Ricardo Mello 6-7(6), 6-3, 7-6(3)

Not only was Louk the first player representing Ireland to win a Grand Slam event main draw match in the Open Era (2010 Australian Open), his father, Sean, was the first Irishman to play a Grand Slam main draw match in the Open Era, going out in the first round of Wimbledon in 1977. (Matt Doyle reached the fourth round of the US Open in 1982, but played under the American flag then, only becoming an Irish citizen in 1985).
