Girls and Boys Singles top seeds Natasha RUSSELL (AUS) & Kokoro ISOMURA (JPN) made light work of their opponents this morning at the Darwin Junior International, claiming their respective victories in 1.5 hours. The other end of the Boys Singles draw saw the upset of the day, with unseeded player Stefan BIANCHET (AUS) coming back from a set down to take out the #2 seed, Cooper WHITE (AUS) 6-7(5) 6-3 6-2.  Unfortunately, the local hopes were dashed today with the last of the locals bowing out, when Jett LEONG lost his battle to Edward VO (AUS) 6-2 6-4.
