After a minor shoulder injury at the PPA Mesa in February James Ignatowich was forced to miss the last two tournaments but fortunately was back in action today in all three events. Let’s take a look at how the first round of the progression draws unfolded for James and the other Selkirk professionals.

Women’s Doubles: Parenteau & Rohrabacher Double Double Pickle

Catherine Parenteau and Anna Leigh Waters got off on the right foot today winning their first round match 11-0, 11-0. The #2 seeds Anna Bright and Rachel Rohrabacher backed that up with an 11-0, 11-0 win of their own. The top seeds may be on a collision course for another Sunday showdown.

James Ignatowich and Matt Wright advanced with an 11-3, 11-9 win and will face up and comers Jaume Martinez Vich and Augustus Ge in the round of 16. With Jack Sock exiting early today the bottom half of the draw gets a bit more open for James and Matt.
