Sylvester, who partnered Calvin Hemery from France to dismiss the number one doubles seed, de Paula Fabiano and Fernando Romboli, in the quarterfinal, will fancy his chances of making it to the final of the event when action resumes on Thursday, 11 May.

Meanwhile, facts have emerged on the real reason for Clifford Enosoregbe's loss to Mateusz Smolicki in the first round of the Dayak Championship.
Enosoregbe lost in two straight sets which both ended in tie-breakers and this was perceived as being disappointing by many Nigerians who followed the game and were on ground to watch the players.
In a chat with Naija Tennis Special, Enosoregbe revealed that he actually injured his elbow and this prevented him from putting in his very best during the game.

"He played really well," the player explained.
"The medics have asked me to rest the hand for a minimum of four days so that I can be ready for the third leg of the ITF Futures.
"Hopefully, the third leg will not be like the first two that I have participated in so far," Enosoregbe, a former Nigerian number one player, added.
