Qualifying under way at St George's Hill

The Channel VAS Championship kicked off at St George's Hill LTC with sixteen players looking to claim a place in the PSA $100k main draw.

Six of the matches went with seeding as all the local entries lost out, top seeds Steve Coppinger and Gregoire Marche joined by Paul Coll, Nicolas Mueller, Adrian Waller and Lucas Serme in tomorrow's qualifying finals.

Both upset results came on the Glass court as Nathan Lake turned in a fine performance to beat sixth-seeded Scot Alan Clyne in four games, and Charles Sharpes put out St George's own Tom Richards, the third seed retiring injured after losing the first two games.
