Dutch contender Igor Sijsling trounces Josselin Ouanna to enter main draw of US Open – Tennis News

Qualifying top seed, Igor Sijsling from Netherlands tumbled the French challenger, Josselin Ouanna, in straight sets at the US Open 2012, last of the four Grand Slam events taking place in Corona Park in Queens, New York City. He notched up a 6-3, 6-4 victory
against the world number 145 to power into the main draw on Friday.

The seeded Dutch showed top class skills and abilities to overpower Ouanna in their first encounter. After earning the success, Sijsling comfortably secured a spot in the main draw at this major hard court event held in Flushing Meadows.

Sijsling enthusiastically entered the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. He suffered the first blow in third game and went 1-2 down. However, the Dutch not only recovered in the very next game but capitalised on another break chance in the eighth
game to bag the opener with a 6-3 success.

Ranked 77th in the South African Airways ATP World Tour Rankings, Sijsling kept momentum rolling in the following set. He smoothly held his entire serves with self-assurance. The Dutch got the breakthrough in the fifth game and consequently clinched
the set with a 6-4 score line.

On the whole, the 25-year-old recorded impressive stats. He smashed five aces and committed fewer unforced errors. Sijsling also manipulated a better first serve share of 62 per cent as opposed to his opponent’s 55 per cent and amazingly clicked 31 out of
40 points on it.

Seeded 24th in the qualifying competition, Karol Beck also earned the limelight and advanced into the main draw. He displayed brilliant tennis to upset the 24-year-old. Both contestants encountered each other at the Bath Challenger last circuit
and after earning this success, the Slovak maintained his winning record and advanced into the first round at this major hard court event.

The Slovakian veteran, Beck smacked seven aces and spilled only three double faults. He clobbered a lower first serve share of 43 per cent as opposed to his rival’s 56 per cent but tremendously marked 19 out of 23 points on it. He ended the match with 67
points and ultimately stole the spotlight.
