Scholtz safely through in Stellenbosch to make amends

After losing in the first round last week Nik Scholtz is through to the second round of the Digicall Futures 3 tennis tournament in Stellenbosch.
The fourth seed needed less than an hour to beat wild card Altus Karsten 6-1 6-2.
Conditions at the Coetzenburg courts of the Stellenbosch University were very hot, but not as windy as last week.
South African qualifier Sari Stegmann had a great day. She got the better of seventh seed Erika Vogelsang. Stegmann needed just more than an hour to beat the player from Holland 6-1 6-4.
Another seeded player who didn’t make the next round was Italy’s Francesco Vilardo who was seeded fifth. Switzerland’s Lucu Margaroli battled him for almost three hours to win 6-7 6-1 6-1.
James Marsalek from Britain also needed just less than three hours to win his first-round match. The eighth seed beat Ruben Konings from Holland 3-6 6-7 6-1.
South African wild card Joshua Howard-Tripp won his match against qualifier Rikhardt Biermand 7-5 6-2 to reach the second round of the tournament like last week.
Last week’s champions Chanel Simmonds and Lloyd Harris will be in action on Wednesday.
