ATP Montpellier Results & Quick Hits

  • The flashy and unpredictable Dustin Brown scored himself another Top 10 win as he ousted top seed Marin Cilic on Wednesday. Previously his wins had come on grass (Rafael Nadal, Halle 2014 and Wimbledon 2016, John Isner, Houston 2014). For Cilic his Montpellier miseries continued with a second opening loss in a row.
  • It was back down to earth with a bump too for Mischa Zverev after bumping World No. 1 Andy Murray from the Australian Open. He toiled against qualifier Kenny De Schepper.
  • Britain’s Aljaz Bedene is back in action against Alexander ZverevPREVIEW
