^^ Do they share coaches at all? Who travels with who - I know Evo has been with Julien Hoferlein. What about the likes of Edmund, Broady, Golding, Ward?

Has there been any play in Portugal? Looks like they haven't even finished qualifying. Oli waiting to play his first round match?

Surely if it is hard court they can move at least some of it indoors?
I don't believe so. Oli was with Hoferlin last year but as you say, he's back with Dan this year. Kyle is with Colin Beecher, Broady with Mark Hilton. Can't remember who Oli is with, and I have no idea about Ward (doesn't he fund himself?).

Portugal still not finished qualifying. They're hoping to get FQR and R1 finished today but given the weather forecast and the fact that the next tournament is meant to start on Saturday (qualifying) it could well just be scrapped completely.

You'd have thought so, wouldn't you? Maybe there aren't any suitable facilities nearby.

Luke, just saw that a Brit named  Joe Salisbury teamed up with an Irish guy named David O'Hare to face the Bryan Bro's in Memphis. They lost 6-4 6-4, which is not a bad result. Do you have any info on Salisbury? I've never heard of him before this but from what I see he plays on the college circuit.

He's a pretty talented Brit out in the US at college. No idea when he started or when he will finish, but definitely one to watch out for when he's out. He beat the world #291 in qualifying 6&1, before bowing out to the world #175 Elias 6-1, 6-3. Also beat Olivetti (then #315, now #207) last year on grass (Olivetti is a massive server).

That's a very impressive result for the duo against the #1 doubles team. Only broken once in each set.

The guys over on BritishTennis.net will have a far better idea than me. A few of them have seen him play.

"Both Glennon and Salisbury are very capable at this level"
"Never seen Glennon but I have seen Salisbury a few times and always been impressed. He is a good serve and is great at net so if the courts here are quick he might pull off an upset or two."
"Pretty big scalp for Salisbury then (but not entirely surprising). These under ranked college players are a nightmare to regular circuit pro's"

Gabb wins 2&3 Turkey to make the QFs and Edmund beats the 5th seed 3&5 to make the SFs in Croatia.

Willis lost again in his QF. Been a poor start to the year for him (a first round exit and three QFs, having been seeded 4 or higher in all four tournaments again relatively weak opposition). Think they're planning on stepping up to Challengers.

^In an agonising match Corrie eventually lost out 5-7, 7-6(7), 4-6. Saved a MP in the tie-break.

But better news from Zagreb, where Kyle has just upset top seed and former top 150 player (last year) Ignatik!

SF: (4) Kyle Edmund WR 319 beat (1) Uladzimir Ignatik (BLR) WR 282 (CH 137 a year ago) by 7-6(3) 7-6(9).

Meanwhile Borna Coric (2nd seed and already top 300 in the world at 17!) lost to Torebko yesterday (who lost to Luke Bambridge last week!), leaving Kyle as the highest seed left in the tournament.

So in the final Kyle will face either Torebko (WR 445, CH182 in 2012) or Veger (WR 667 - one month older than Kyle).

Will now take out his career high and will be right around #300 in the world. If he wins the final he would guarantee a top 300 ranking.

Three players competing in Marseille this week, both in qualifying and main draw.

Dan Evans kicks off his qualifying against Norbert Gombos of Slovakia.

James Ward starts his qualifying against Maxime Chazal of France.

Kyle Edmund plays Tobias Kamke of Germany in the first round of the main draw, with the winner possibly meeting 5th seed Ivan Dodig.

QR2: (q2) Dan Evans WR 123 beat Roberto Marcora (ITA) WR 348 by 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-4.
QR2: (q8) James Ward WR 178 beat Lorenzo Giustino (ITA) WR 229 (CH 228 in Jan) by 6-4, 6-2.

Both get 6 ranking points for making the FQR. Evans will face Laaksonen who took out the 5th Q seed and Ward will probably play Berankis (remember him) who has fallen by the wayside of late and finds himself down at WR 153. A very hot and cold player.

Gabb lost his QF 7-6 in the third against the 4th seed, really close match.

Meanwhile Oli Golding had a nightmare start to his QF with Neisten, losing 8 of the first 9 games and falling a double break down in the 2nd - but he then fought back, broke his opponent when he served for the match and then broke again to take the second set 7-5.

Just started the third. Come on Oli.
