Wes in second round
- Updated: November 10, 2010
Unseeded Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman are through to the second round of the BNP Paribas Masters tennis tournament in Paris, writes Mark Etheridge.
The South African/Belgian combination beat Robert Lindstedt (Swe) and Horia Tecau (Rom) in straight sets, 6-3 6-4. Moodie and Norman have come up against this selfsame combination on more than one occasion this year.
The reward for victory is a second round match against the Polish fifth seeded pairing of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski. Should they get past that hurdle their “reward” is possibly a tough quarter-final assignment against top seeded American combination of brothers Bob and Mike Bryan.
It’s crucial that Moodie and Norman do as well as possible at this 2,750,00 Euros tournament in France as the season-ending London Masters looms large at the end of the year with places at an absolute premium.
