Liam was on the entry list for Quimper

He withdrew (last minute by looks of it) as he is in Glasgow as a practice partner (being a leftie)

Also, because Wimbly or LTA changed their "rules" on issuing Wildcards for Brits meaning that support of GB Davis Cup is a condition of going towards earning one.  So he will lose points for Quimper but has done his WC chances for Wimbly good

Big win for Liam. Wins his first round match against Matosevic in five sets. Played some good tennis and kept fighting.

Not just 'in five sets' - but from two sets down, and that's with Liam having never played a five set match in his career before.

Both players have really struggled for form this year but the courage and determination to turn that around is quite remarkable. Brilliant comeback.

You wouldn't believe it. I actually went out at 5-7, 4-5 down. Just come back and seen the final score.

Just watching what I missed.

Having played mostly well for the first two sets, he failed to capitalise on any of his break points (bar one) and then threw in a loose service game in the pivotal stages of both sets (5-5 and 4-4).

But from the third onward he was absolutely supreme - for a player who has often been criticised for having no weapons, he was hitting some incredible winners from all over the court. His backhand was exceptional - which is interesting to me, as there's not a lot of players out there with reliable backhands.

Whole match can be viewed here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/tennis/32631296

On a side note, BBC's coverage is - as always - excellent.
