But on the minus side for the domestic game, the top four British women were knocked out within minutes of each other.

Greg Rusedski survived an early break of serve and losing the first set to reach the quarter-finals of the Surbiton Trophy with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over the Korean Hyung Taik Lee here yesterday. But on the minus side for the domestic game, the top four British women were knocked out within minutes of each other.

The British men's No 2's returning was disappointing but he improved steadily in his all- round game, wrapping things up with a trademark ace.

The British women's No 1, Anne Keothavong, lost to America's Alexandra Stevenson in three sets, while the No 2, Jane O'Donoghue, lost 6-4, 6-4 to the Russian Anna Chakvetadze. Amanda Janes, No 3 and daughter of Christine Truman, was emphatically beaten 6-4, 6-2 by the Puerto Rican Vilmarie Castellvi, but the biggest disappointment was probably Elena Baltacha, the former No 1, who lost in three sets to Akiko Morigami.
