Brownell Takes Victory On Home Soil

Timothy Brownell and Alfredo Avila on court in the final of the Sam Aguiar Louisville OpenAmerican Timothy Brownell claimed his second victory of 2022 on home soil with a confident win over Mexicoís Alfredo Avila in the final of the Sam Aguiar Louisville Open on Saturday evening in Louisville, Kentucky.

Brownell, the World No.68, came into the Challenger 10 level tournament as the top seed, and was aiming for his second win of the year after his title run at the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions Challenger in New York City back in May, where he then reached the second round of the Gold level J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions a few days later.

His run in Louisville started in the second round, after receiving a bye through the opening dayís action, where he got the better of Pakistanís Nasir Iqbal in a four-game contest that lasted just shy of the hour mark. He then defeated another Pakistani in Muhammad Ashab Irfan, this time in straight games.

The semi-finals saw Brownell overcome Egyptís Seif Shenawy, the tournamentís No.5 seed, in just 28 minutes, and dropping just 13 points in the process, to move through to the final, where he took on Mexicoís Avila, already a winner on Tour this season,

However, the Mexican came into the final off the back of a 100-minute battle in the last four, and Brownell used his freshness to take the victory. He ran to into a two-game lead, and although Avila won the third to bring himself back into the contest, it was the American that took the title, winning 11-4, 11-8, 7-11, 11-6 in exactly 50 minutes, to secure his second crown of the year.
Jeeva and Chotrani Cause Opening Day Upsets

The opening day of the Sam Aguiar Louisville Open threw up a couple of surprise results, with Malaysiaís Sanjay Jeeva and Indian Veer Chotrani both taking down higher-ranks opposition to make the second round of the Challenger 10 level competition.

The action got underway at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday afternoon, with Jeeva being the first on to Court 1 in his clash with Guatemalan Alejandro Enriquez. The Malaysian seemed in complete control throughout, and after winning the first 11-3, he held the momentum in the contest. He maintained that to the end, securing victory in straight games to book his place in the last 16, where he will face No.2 seed Alfredo Avila.

The other surprise result saw Indiaís Veer Chotrani get the better of Colombian Edgar Ramirez Bautista, in a match that had two very distinct parts to it. The first two games flew by, with the Indian dropping just a single point in both to hold the advantage in the match. The third, though, went deep into a tie-break, with Chotrani eventually winning 16-14 to book his spot in the second round.

Elsewhere, the only match to go to a fourth game saw Pakistanís Muhammad Ashab Irfan get the better of USAís Jamie Ruggiero. Irfan led 2-0 after winning the second on a tie-break, but the American fought back to win the third game 12-10. However, the Pakistani regrouped, and won the third game comfortably to advance to the last 16.

The second round of the Sam Aguiar Louisville Open will take place on Wednesday, September 7, with the eight seeded players coming into the draw. You can keep up to date with live scores from the event right here.
