Rene Mijs, Victor Reguera, David Maier and Yuri Farneti all progressing to the second round without losing a game.
In the women’s draw, the games were closer.  The SpaniardsNoa Romero and Ona Blasco both needed 5 games to overcome their respective opponents, both exchanging games to 2-2 before clinching the winning game.
Mariam Eissa and Karolina Sramkova both managed to progress, only dropping a single game whilst K Lincou, Amelie Haworth, B Sameh and S Zrazhevska all progressed without dropping a game.
