HUDDERSFIELD’S Euan Wilson-Baig caused a stir in the Sellers International when he knocked out No1 seed Josh Webster in the 12 and Under boys.
The Edgerton county prodigy, who became a national champion in Grade 2 (the Mini Green Ball 10 and Under class) at Nottingham earlier this year, defeated the Cheshire player 7-5 6-3.
Wilson-Baig was playing Connor Tordoff, the No6 seed, at the next stage of the competition.
The No3 seed Freddie Grant, of Surrey, also fell in that section to Lancashire’s Nemihah Fletchman – 11-9 in a match tie-break – as the tournament continued apace with 79 matches yesterday.
Thongsbridge player Andrew Atkinson (No4) ensured all the top seeds went through in the Boys 16s.
After defeating Thomas Knapton, he went on to beat Callum Hayes 6-2 6-2 and he will now feature in the quarter-finals, where half the field are from Yorkshire and No5 see Troy Dixon (Oxfordshire) is missing after being knocked out.
Dan Sinclair, the No1 seed in the senior men’s draw, went through for Thongsbridge when beating qualifier George Chater-Clarke 6-0 6-1.
Huddersfield’s Sean Stafford had a clean sweep against another qualifier, Bradley Bond, and that scoreline was replicated by No4 seed Simon Howson against James Blackburn.
The men’s quarter-finals take place tonight from 6.30, while tomorrow’s action centres around the 14s and 18s in both the Boys and Girls.
