LOCAL hope Joe Gill hasn’t made it through to the main draw for the AEGON GB Pro-Series event at Sheffield’s Graves Tennis Centre.

Gill, aged 23, from Dronfield, was beaten in the second qualifying round by fellow Briton Adam Thornton-Brown after winning his opening round match against Jack Paterson. The tournament, which has a prize fund of $15,000, begins its main draw today.

British pair Daniel Evans and Alex Ward are seeded seventh and eighth. Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz is top seed.
