Ricardas Berankis

Three players who call the IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy their home won their first round matches at the SAP Open in San Jose. Ricardas Berankis, 19, upset former top-15 player and US Open semifinalist, Robby Ginepri, 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-3. Berankis was top junior in the world in 2007 and was also the 2007 Jr. US Open champion. He qualified to get into the event and finished the match with nine aces. He will face German, Bjorn Phau, in the second round.

Joining Berankis were veterans Tommy Haas and Taylor Dent. Haas beat young American Devin Britton 6-4, 7-6(3) while Dent took down Alex Bogomolov Jr. 6-4, 7-6(2). Haas will face Denis Istomin in the second round and Dent will play fellow American, Sam Querrey.

Good luck to all three in the second round!
