Bloomfield Reaches Semi's
LTA Men's $15,000 Futures, Redbridge

Teenager Richard Bloomfield who is in sparkling form at the moment overcame fellow Brit Mark Hilton yesterday to clinch a place in today's semi finals in the Men's $15,000 Futures event at Redbridge.

Bloomfield still on a high from his victory at the $15,000 event in Southampton last week was simply too strong yesterday for Hilton ranked some 200 places above him, beating him in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.

His reward is a match against Italian Stefano Pescosolido (289) for a place in his second consecutive futures event final. The winner of today's tie face either Swede Marcus Sarstrand or American Michael Joyce, who yesterday put paid to Welshman Ian Flanagan's dream, with a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory.

Flanagan will at least have the satisfaction of earning his first ranking points over the last two weeks, here at Redbridge and also at Southampton, enjoying some excellent wins along the way.

In the doubles event Britain's last representative Jamie Delgado teaming up with South African Louis Vosloo have also reached the semi-final stage. They face Swedish pair Daniel Andersson and Marcus Sarstrand later today.
