Exo-Tennis, USA…

We ended up treading water a bit yesterday with one winner and one loser from our two match picks.

Jan Choinski was the best price of our pair though, and if you got the 11/10 (2.10) on him then you got some decent value. His opponent, Tennis Point Exhibition Series newcomer Alexey Vatutin, lost both his matches on day one in Germany.

The organisers of that German tournament have announced a new arm of the competition, to be played in the USA…

Named the Exo-Tennis Series, this got underway in Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday and will run for over the next two weeks, consisting of two men’s events and two women’s tournaments. Full info, including a link to watch the matches live, is on their website here.

That’s more good news for us, giving us plenty of tennis to follow this month. And some familiar players, like our long-lost friend Donald Young – who was an unwitting regular in this column due to a long & painful, 17-match losing streak back in the summer of 2012. Sorry to bring that up again, Donald.

Bryde one to watch in Atlanta…

Looking at today’s match-ups in Germany and Atlanta, one player worth following is Trent Bryde.

Currently ranked outside the world’s top 1,000, the 20-year-old American reeled off two impressive score-lines on day one yesterday. Beating Donald Young 6-2, 6-1, before dispatching Korey Lovett by exactly the same match score.

Like our recent Florida ‘one to watch’ Reilly Opelka, Bryde lives in the State where this event is being played – and is an Atlanta native. It could be that a familiarity with the surroundings works in his favour here.

Bryde has two more matches today. He’s a 9/4 (3.25) underdog to beat the higher-ranked and more ‘recognisable’ name, Chris Eubanks. And an 8/13 (1.62) favourite to beat the unheralded 30-year-old South African, Ruan Roelofse.

Eubanks lost his first match 2-0 on Thursday, then only just scraped by Roelofse by two sets to one (they don’t play a full final set here; it’s decided by a Champions Tiebreak which is first to 10 points). The score was 7-6, 3-6, 10-5. Roelofse has lost two out of two matches so far.

With the momentum and confidence of those two straight-sets wins on day one under his belt, Trent Bryde is one to follow again today.
