Lee fell to a 6-3, 6-4 first-round defeat to seventh seed Shelby Rodgers in 72 minutes.

The American saved one of two break points and converted three of seven, winning 67 of the 113 points contested to advance to the second round.

“Although it was a defeat for me today, I have improved my game and I am moving in the right direction. The experience has also helped to bolster my confidence playing on indoor courts,” said Lee, who served up four double faults in the defeat.  [FULL  STORY]
