Colin and Ross got off to a winning start at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships, defeating the American-Australian duo of Ryan Sweeting and Bernard Tomic 6-4, 7-5. The British pair got off to a flying start breaking early and leading 3-0. But then they got broken back straight away, and the set turned into a scrappy affair. The British pair managed to break again and won the first set 6-4.
In the 2nd set the Tomic and Sweeting went up a break early and lead most the way. In another scrappy set in difficult conditions the Brits managed to hold it together, breaking back, then breaking again to win the 2nd set 7-5.
This sets up a quarter final encounter with Monroe and Sock Thursday evening.
