Fifth-seeded Chilean Nicolas Jarry got off to a winning start on his Swedish Open debut recovering from a 2-4 deficit in the first set in a hard-fought 7-6(1), 7-5 win over Henri Laaksonen of Switzerland in one hour and 44 minutes on Tuesday. Laaksonen came back from 1-3 down in the second set, which included five service breaks. Jarry, the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open finalist (l. to A. Zverev) in May, will now play Swedish wild card Mikael Ymer.
Damir Dzumhur, the Bosnia and Herzegovina right-hander, overcame seventh seed Casper Ruud of Norway 6-4, 6-2 in 86 minutes and will next play Roberto Carballes Baena, who knocked out his fellow Spaniard and doubles partner this week, Jaume Munar in three sets on Monday.
France’s Jeremy Chardy recorded his 15th match win of the season by beating Spanish qualifier Pablo Carreno Busta, a former No. 10 in the ATP Rankings, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 in two hours and 12 minutes. He now challenges top-seeded Chilean Cristian Garin in Båstad.
