Reigning champion Matthew Barton and second seed James Duckworth have progressed to the quarter finals of the Charles Sturt Adelaide International at West Lakes.
Barton was impressive in defeating British qualifier Cameron Norrie in straight sets and will now play Japan’s Hiroki Moriya in tomorrow’s quarter finals. Moriya won through to the quarter final after dispatching of rising Australian player Marc Polmans 6-1 6-3.
Duckworth will play American Jamere Jenkins who had a straight sets win over Australian qualifier Dayne Kelly today 6-3 6-4.
In the other two quarter finals Tatsuma Ito of Japan will take on Australian 21 year old Maverick Banes in the twilight match starting at 4:30pm and fifth seeded Australian John-Patrick Smith plays American number one seed Bradley Klahn in what should be a tightly contested match.
