Simpson gategrashes the last sixteen in Doha

It was back down to the bottom half of the draw today at the Khalifa International Tennis & Squash Complex in Doha, as the ’round of 32′ came to completion.

The day started with a big upset as Chris Simpson finally got the big win that he’s been threatening for so long with a five-game win over 9th seed LJ Anjema, then settled down to yesterday’s pattern with a series of fairly comfortable wins for the seeded players
