Kamke Ousts Robredo in Stockholm

Kamke Ousts Robredo in Stockholm

Tobias Kamke upset Tommy Robredo 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of the If Stockholm Open.

The German won 86 per cent of points behind his first serve and converted four of his seven break point opportunities for victory in 62 minutes.

Robredo dropped to a 20-11 match record on a season plagued by injury for the past seven months. He has not reached an ATP World Tour quarter-final since March at Indian Wells.

Kamke will next play Michael Ryderstedt or Sebastian Rieschick.

Jarkko Nieminen beat Marius Copil 6-3, 7-6(4).

Nieminen, who reached his first ATP World Tour final in Stockholm 10 years ago, withstood 10 aces and saved three break points.

He goes on to face third-seeded Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka.
