Chengdu, Sichuan, China, 24 September 2018 |

Bernard Tomic won his second match in as many days to qualify for the main draw of the ATP tour event in Chengdu, China.

The Aussie beat Belarusian Egor Gerasimov 6-7(5) 6-3 7-6(4) on Sunday, turning the tables on his opponent after losing to Gerasimov six weeks ago in Los Cabos.

Tomic will face Bradley Klahn in his first-round main draw match in Chengdu as he continues his push back towards the top 100.

His latest win takes his record to nine wins from his past 11 matches – his season win-loss record stands at 28-15 – and he is projected to rise to No.119 in the ATP rankings.

Tomic has landed in the opposite half of that draw to Matt Ebden; the West Australian is seeded sixth this week in Chengdu.

A day earlier in Guangzhou, China, Monique Adamczak and Jessica Moore combined to win their first WTA title as a duo.

The Aussies defeated Danka Kovinic and Vera Lapko 4-6 7-5 [10-4].

Adamczak and Moore each own two WTA doubles titles.

The news was not so good for Sam Stosur, who fell in her opening-round match in Wuhan on Sunday.

Stosur, a wildcard into the main draw, was beaten 6-2 6-2 by China’s Zhang Shuai, whom she recently teamed with to reach the US Open doubles semifinals.

Stosur’s countrywomen Ash Barty and Daria Gavrilova play their first-round matches on Monday.

Meanwhile, Jordan Thompson came close to a second ATP Challenger title of 2018 but ulitmately fell in the final of the event in Columbus, Ohio on Sunday.

American Michael Mmoh proved too strong for the Aussie, winning 6-3 7-6(6).

However, it was a confidence-boosting week for the Sydneysider, who arrived in Colombus on a five-match losing streak before turning that around in building a four-match winning streak.

The result is expected to push Thompson back to the brink of the top 100.
