TENNIS - Glasspool into second round of Men's doubles at Wimbledon

REDDITCH’s Lloyd Glasspool has reached the second round of the Men’s doubles at Wimbledon.

Glasspool and Finnish partner Harri Heliƶvaara romped to a straight sets 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win against Italian-French pairing Lorenzo Musetti and Hugo Gaston.

The pair are seeded 15th for the tournament having reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros (French Open) last month where they were beaten in a tie-break.

And the duo reached the third round at Wimbledon last year after being handed a wildcard to enter the competition.




The 28-year-old has reached three ATP Tour finals this year including the Men’s doubles at Queens.

The pair will play either American-Norwegian duo William Blumberg and French Open runner-up Casper Ruud or Colombian-Mexican combo Nicolas Barrientos and Miguel Angel Reyes-Varela in the second round.
