PR dla Zagranicy

Next up for Fyrstenberg and Gonzalez are Filipino Treat Huey and Belarusian Max Mirnyi.
The match looks likely to be a tough call for the Polish-Mexican duo as Huey and Mirnyi defeated the pair last week in their clash at the Delray Beach Open in the US.
Left-hander Fyrstenberg's career best to date came in 2011 when he made the final of the US Open with his then doubles partner Marcin Matkowski. The Polish pair ultimately lost to Jurgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner. (nh/pk)
