With a commanding straight-set victory over the defending ATP Pune winner Joao Sousa this week, Emil Ruusuvuori averted consecutive first-round exits from ATP Stockholm. The score was 6-3, 6-2. In the first round of the competition, where he was making his tournament debut, he was defeated by Pedro Martinez Portero in three sets. The young Finn had several dominant weeks on indoor hard courts early in his career, but he hasn’t played on the surface in 22 months. In fact, all three of his previous indoor tournament appearances this year—in Metz, Tel Aviv, and Astana—ended in the second round due to losses to Alexander Bublik, Constant Lestienne, and Daniil Medvedev.

Jiri Lehecka, who earlier this year at the Australian Open lost to Grigor Dimitrov in his first-ever match in the main draw of a tour-level competition, faced the Bulgarian No. 1 in Stockholm’s first round and prevailed, 6-4 1-6 7-6. In 11 tries, he had only two top-50 victories. Denis Shapovalov, who was ranked #12 at the time, was defeated by him earlier this year on the indoor hard courts in Rotterdam, where he went on to reach the semifinals, his greatest performance on the main circuit.
