Cameron Norrie reached the semi-final of the Champaign Challenger in Illinois, US. Cameron eased his way through three matches dropping only 13 games in the process, before losing out to eventual winner Tim Smyczek in three sets 5-7, 7-6, 3-6.

Jonny O’Mara and partner Scott Clayton reached the semi-final s of the MSLTA Challenger in Pune, India. The pair lost out to the eventual winners Tomislav Brkic and Ante Pavic 7-5, 6-4.
