Gijs Brouwer thunders through in Houston and convincingly reaches third round | Sport

Gijs Brouwer has surprisingly easily won his second match on the ATP Tour. The Dutch tennis player defeated the American JJ Wolf in Houston in two sets and awarded his opponent two games: 6-1 6-1.

In his first match ever on the ATP Tour, the 26-year-old Brouwer, who was born in the Texan city, had beaten the much more highly regarded Spaniard Feliciano López.

Brouwer comes from the qualifications. He is the number 361 in the world and therefore the lowest ranked player in the world ranking who is still in the Houston tournament. He will meet American Reilly Opelka, the number 18 in the world, in the third round.

Brouwer is normally mainly active in challengers and futures tournaments, the lowest category of international tennis. In the summer of 2020 he became Dutch champion.
