Sixth seed Donald Young (pictured) led a trio of Americans through to the second round of the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport, Rhode Island, on Monday. Young, who at Wimbledon suffered his fourth consecutive first-round loss of the season, defeated Korean qualifier Woong-Sun Jun 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 to claim his first ATP-level match win since Houston at the beginning of the clay season. Young will next face another qualifier, Austrian Alexander Peya, who defeated German Philipp Petzschner 6-7(3), 6-3, 7-5.
American veteran Vince Spadea, the 2005 Newport finalist, advanced to the second round with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 win over German Simon Stadler. Spadea next plays third seed and 2007 finalist Nicolas Mahut, who received a bye in the first round.
American qualifier Brendan Evans upset Chilean Paul Capdeville 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 to set a second-round meeting with the winner of seventh-seeded Canadian Frank Dancevic and American wild card Taylor Dent, who won the Newport title in 2002. Dent, whose career has been derailed by injury, has not played an ATP-level match since February 2006 in Rotterdam.
