Marcus Daniell and Dominic Inglot turn up the heat to reach round two of Australian Open men’s doubles

18 January 2018

Team Bath Tennis player Marcus Daniell and new men’s doubles partner Dominic Inglot battled through intense heat to secure their place in the second round of the Australian Open on Thursday.

Daniell, coached by Dave Sammel and Ian MacDonald, and Inglot won the opening set 6-4 but lost the second 6-2 to the Canadian/British pairing of Adil Shamasdin and Neal Skupski.

They stepped it up in the third set, though, and broke early before fending off four break points in the last game to seal a 6-3 win in temperatures approaching 40 degrees.

Daniell and Inglot will now face the unseeded French pair of Benoit Paire and Hugo Nys – that match is scheduled for Saturday.
