Greg Rusedski shows great concentration as he returns the ball during his 6-3, 6-1 first round defeat of the Russian Mikhail Youzhny in the Nasdaq-100 Open tennis tournament in Key Biscayne, Miami, yesterday. Rusdeski's win gives British tennis fans something to be smile about after Andy Murray's 7-5, 3-6, 6-4 defeat by Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka late on Wednesday night. Murray's fitness is now a concern for Britain's Davis Cup tie against Serbia & Montenegro in Glasgow next month after he sprained his ankle during the match. Rusedski will face the 32nd seed, Juan Ignacio Chela, in the next round.
