Wes wins in Valencia
- Updated: November 3, 2010
Wesley Moodie is through to the quarter-finals of the Valencia 500 Open in Spain.
Partnered with Belgium’s Dick Norman, our top-ranked doubles player, went through 6-3 7-6 (1) against the unseeded local combination of Nicolas Almagro and Santiago Ventura.
Victory means there’s a chance that Moodie and Norman, unseeded for this 1,3-million Euros tournament, may have to deal with top seeds Lukasz Kubot and Oliver Marach in the quarters.
The Polish/Austrian combination play another all-Spanish combination in the form of Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Albert Montanes in their first round clash.
Jamie Murray, former partner of our doubles specialist Jeff Coetzee, has now tamed up with his better-known brother Andy in the doubles competition at Valencia and are also through to the quarter-final stage.
Coetzee meanwhile, lost in the first round of the Bauer Watertechnology Challenger event in Eckental, Germany this week. Teaming up with Poland’s Mateusz Kowalczyk, he went down in three sets, 6-2 6-7 10-7 to James Cerretani and Jesse Huta Galung of the US and Netherlands respectively.
Other South Africans in international action saw Andrew Anderson and Fritz Wolmarans winning in the second round of the Charlottesville Challenger qualifying tournament. The two then came up against each other with Wolmarans winning in three sets.
