Players stepped back on court today after Sunday’s matches were cancelled due to rain. Rain did not hinder the quality of play, or focus of tournament players as they continued their journey out of the third round of the qualifying draw.

Frenchman, Chris Devoize outlasted Matthew Rossouw 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 today. This is Devoize’s second match in a row that went to three sets. He is scheduled to face either thirteen seed Jordi Arconada or Robert Herrera in the fourth round. Their match will conclude on Tuesday.

Fifth seed Boris Bakalov lost to Tassilo Schmid 6-3, 6-1. Schmid is one of three Germans that has made it to the final round of the qualifying draw. Schmid will face off against twelfth seed D. Biosca Girvent tomorrow.

Freshman Volunteer, Timo Stodder beat Vadym Kalyuzhnyy in close straight sets 6-4, 7-6(7) to continue main draw hope. He will meet the University of Alabama assistant coach Ryler Deheart in the fourth and final qualifying round. Deheart has yet to be pushed in his first three matches, but this match-up will test both players resolve to win.

Eighth seed Luciano Betella of Argentina defeated American junior Christopher Yun 6-2, 6-2. Betella awaits the conclusion of Joel Link and Kai Lemke’s match.

Nine third round matches have been delayed due to weather. Qualifying rounds will resume on Tuesday alongside seven main draw singles matches and at least three double matches will commence.
