Russell shocks Tursunov

American Michael Russell caused an upset as he came from a set down to beat sixth seed Dmitry Tursunov to reach the second round of the Farmers Classic in Los Angeles.

The Russian edged the first set on a tie-break, but Russell stormed back to claim a 6-7 (5/7) 6-0 6-2 victory.

Also today, China's Lu Yen-Hsun beat American Robby Ginepri 6-4 7-5, but there was better news for another American, Ryan Sweeting, who was a 6-4 7-6 (8/6) winner over Somdev Devvarman.
