We are very much looking forward to Wednesday, where many exciting meetings await in the second round.

Some results from the first round in singles stand out more than others: Germany’s Miko Koeppen knocked out fourth seed Niall Pickerd-Barua of Great Britain 6-3, 6-2. German Aurelia Löhrer also had a good day, knocking out fifth-seeded Marina Markina from Latvia 6-4, 6-1. Löhrer and Markina also played together in the doubles tournament that started on this Tuesday. There, four Swedes went through; Melker Andersson (Ystads TK) & Christian Görgin (Stora Wäsby TK) and Emil Curovic (Gothia Tennis) & Wictor Kjellberg (KLTK).

If we look at Wednesday’s programme, we find several interesting meetings. In the girls’ singles, Darina Matvejeva of Latvia (who knocked out Joyce Geng) faces Daniella Britton of Great Britain. Can 13-year-old Matvejeva continue to impress?

On the boys’ side, both the Evgenii Kafelnikov against second-seeded Pavel Oliver Dufek from the Czech Republic and Alexey Ilin against Andrei Radu from Romania matches are definitely worth watching.

It will also be interesting to see what Grace Bernstein (KLTK/GTG) can do against fourth-seeded Anna Pircher of Austria. The other Swede who remains in the second round is Filippa Eckersten (Svedala TK) who meets Sophie Triquart from Germany.

In our stories on our Instagram account, we interviewed three of the players who advanced to the second round on Tuesday.

Daniella Britton, UK said: “I did what was required and I’m glad I’m through. This arena is incredible, it is as big as a football stadium”.

Alex Tuomolin, Finland said: “I played great. I really enjoy playing here in Stockholm. My attitude is to always do my best and win the next match”.

Eric Lorimer, Great Britain said: “It was a tough match. You have to be aggressive and go to the net as the surface is a bit slow. My hope is to go at least to the third round”.

On Wednesday, the Players Party awaits in the restaurant, but before that, of course, lots of matches await in the second round starting at 10:30.
