Venus into London grass court quarters

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/06/2017

The sharp pre-Wimbledon form of Kiwi doubles player Michael Venus has continued at a grass court tournament in London.

Venus and American partner Ryan Harrison are through to the quarter-finals of the Aegon Championships after a straight sets first-round win.

The recently-crowned French Open champions eased past Spaniards Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez 6-2 6-4.

Last week Venus and Harrison reached a grass court semi-final in the Netherlands, suggesting they will mount a strong campaign at Wimbledon starting in just over a week's time.

On the same side of the draw this week is Kiwi Marcus Daniell, who had qualified for the quarter-finals with Brazilian Marcelo Demonliner.
