Winning Wimby start for Huey-Inglot



FIL-AM Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot of Great Britain easily won their first match in the Wimbledon men’s doubles with a straight-set romp over Spaniards Roberto Bautista-Agut and Daniel Gimeno-Traver Wednesday.

Huey and Inglot, seeded 16th, outplayed the unseeded pair in all departments in hacking out a 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 triumph in one hour and 37 minutes at All England Club’s Court No. 7.

“Dom and I played a good first round match, we both served well and we took control of the match early [on] with some very good returns,” Huey posted on his Twitter page.

They will next face formidable Germans Andre Begemann and Martin Emmrich, who eliminated Americans Denis Kudla and Tim Smyczek, 6-2, 6-7 (7-4), 6-4, 6-1.

Huey and Inglot, who already had several titles together including two last year, nailed 15 aces between them compared to two from their rivals.

They also won a total of 108 points as against 85 by Traver and Agut, aside from taking decisive edge in winners (21-9), break points won (40 percent-17 percent) and first serve won (70 percent-64 percent).

But Huey and Inglot will have their hands full in the second round against a tandem which has beaten them two straight times.

“We lost to them in the warmup tournament last week but we feel much better here and are looking forward to the match,” added Huey.

Emmrich and Begemann ended their run in the third round of the Hertogenbosch Top 250 in Netherlands last week, 6-2, 7-6 (8-6). In May, the teams disputed the title in Dusseldorf, Germany with the local bets winning, 7-5, 6-2.

The 27-year-old Huey is also competing in the mixed doubles with American Raquel Kops-Jones. Marc Anthony Reyes
