HOUSTON: Japan’s Go Soeda survived a scare from former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt and American Sam Querrey barely broke a sweat in advancing at the US Clay Court Championships on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Soeda needed two hours and 36 minutes to post a 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 win over Hewitt, who won this event in 2009. The 30-year-old Soeda had to save one match point against Hewitt. He will face either Jeremy Chardy or Dusan Lajovic in the next round.
