Taiwanese No. 1 Lu Yen-hsun completed the first part of a double shift at the Aegon Open in Nottingham, England, yesterday after his first-round match was held up by rain on Monday evening.

World No. 61 Lu was leading 6-4, 4-2 when the match was suspended on Monday, but he returned to the Nottingham Tennis Centre grass courts yesterday morning and sealed a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Belgium’s Ruben Bemelmans inside 10 minutes.

Lu saved four of five break-point chances and converted three of six to wrap up the match in 1 hour, 14 minutes on Court Three, winning 67 of the 121 points contested.

Lu was due to return to Court One later yesterday to play his second-round match against world No. 27 Andreas Seppi of Italy, who as the 15th seed received a bye in the first round of the final warm-up tournament ahead of Wimbledon, which starts on Monday next week.     [FULL  STORY]
