blake launceston 5

Hi everyone,

I am in Shanghai, China playing the Challenger event here. I don’t play until tomorrow Wednesday 7th September 2016.

I lost a tough match last week, tried my best, but although I felt I pushed him hard, my serve let me down and lost the match in 3.

Surprise though, I get another chance tomorrow against the same guy.

I am in Main Draw, here is the draw:

Here is the Order of Play:

Cheers Blake
