Home Hope Huta Galung Opens Bid

's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands

Dudi Sela kicked off his Topshelf Open campaign with a 6-4, 7-6(2) win over Benoit Paire on Sunday. It was his first tour-level win on grass since advancing to the quarter-finals in Newport two years ago.

Meanwhile, Dutch wild card Jesse Huta Galung advanced on home soil after ousting Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-2, 1-0 ret. Huta Galung broke serve on three of five occasions before Nedovyesov retired with a back injury. It was his second match victory in five trips to 's-Hertogenbosch.

The 28 year old is one of three Dutchmen in the draw, with Igor Sijsling and Thiemo de Bakker set for a first-round duel on Monday. Huta Galung will next face either second seed Fernando Verdasco or Paul-Henri Mathieu. The last home grown champion in Den Bosch was Sjeng Schalken, who won consecutive titles in 2002-'03.

In qualifying action, Adrian Mannarino, Lukas Lacko, Joao Sousa and Mate Pavic progressed to the main draw with Sunday victories at the Autotron Rosmalen.
