Can watch Kyle's opening match in the Recanati challenger here:http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5057055/events/3172475
Has just taken the first set 6-1 against Marc Giner (WR 267).
Giner is now having an MTO.
Kyle twice a break down in the second set but twice broke straight back. Yet to hold serve this set however - the MTO seemed to upset his rhythm somewhat.
As I type he does hold - 3-3* in the second.
After making his first Challenger SF last week he rose back up to #275 in the world and if he wins this one he'll almost certainly set a new career high in the 260s.
