Update on the British Futures:

Harrison beat Corrie in the Sheffield final in a reverse of Preston the week previous. Went to a final set tie-break.

Better news in Wirrel though - despite 5 foreign seeded players, British players have managed to lock out the semi-finals. Goodall will play Smethurst (who beat the 6th seed 6-2, 6-0) whilst Ed Corrie (12 wins from 13) faces Josh Milton.

Robert Carter made his breakthrough this week. With only 1 ranking point to his name before the tournament, he came through qualifying before beating De Loore (WR 556) 6-4, 6-3 and then hammering Rosenholm (WR345) 6-4, 6-2 before eventually being edged out 5&6 to Milton today. Carter is 19 years old.

Ed Corrie makes it 13 wins from 14 and is into his 3rd successive final after beating Milton 6-3, 7-5.

Goodall and Smethurst are 4-4 in the 3rd.

Tweet from Oli Golding yesterday:

Just played tennis properly for the 1st time in a while! It felt gooood! #roadtorecocery

After all that training in Miami with Andy it's been disappointing that he's been out with injury for a few weeks. Hope he's back in action soon.

Wasn't quite sure where to put this,but according to Mike Dickson Jonny Marray is out for at least 4 weeks with a calf injury, and it could possibly have an impact on Davis Cup in April.

Corrie wins his 3rd Futures title of 2013, beating Evans 6-3, 7-6 in the final.

He's having a brilliant season. 3 titles, 2 finals, 1 semi-final. Will rise to around 330 when these points come in. 2nd highest Brit in YTD rankings, with 82 points so far this year (5 more than Ward).

Broady recorded an impressive win, taking out top 500 player Michon in straight sets.. before getting hammered 2&2 by Farquharson (who made his first SF).

Golding made his return this week (such a shame he's been out for so long), winning his opener before being edged out by Granollers-Pujol (top 400, nearly broke the top 200 last year).

102 points each!

I saw the last bit - saved a couple of matchpoints at 5-6 in third. Good fight, pity he didn't quite make it.

Ed out in the QFs for the first time since the first tournament of the year. Goodall playing a bit better this week, whilst the Dan's face off in the bottom half SF. Evans chasing his 3rd straight final (won one, lost one so far).

(1) Goodall vs (8) Minar (Jan, not Ivo)
(4) Smethurst vs (2) Evans

In Rimouski:

Baker edged out in final set TB to top seed Pospisil in R1.
Ward edged out by 3rd seed Sugita 5&4 in R2.
Bogdanovic into QFs, faces (Q) de Voest. Beat (Q) Moriya (WR175) and (Q) El Mihdawy in first two rounds.

Also an Irish player into the Rimouski QFs (!) - James McGee beat Polansky and (8) Wang en route. Faces (1) Pospisil in QFs.

Top two seeds both lost - Josh edged out in 7-4 in a final set breaker and Smethurst beat Evans in straight sets.

Let's hope DanS can stop Minar beating four Brits in a row.

Boggo plays later, McGee has just taken the 2nd set on a tie-break vs Pospisil to take it into a decider.

Brief interview with Josh Ward-Hibbert and Andrew Fitzpatrick out in Vietnam, interesting insight into what it's like for these sort of players out on tour.
