Green and Bonsels through to Czech main draw
Second qualifying seed Josh Green and sixth seed Jamie Bonsels are though to today's first round at the Thwack Czech International in Brno.
Green won all three of his qualifying matches in straight games, beating team-mate Sam Phillips in his qualifying decider 21-15 21-12.
That earned him a first-round clash later today against another qualifier, Milan Ludik of the Czech Republic.
Bonsels also won his three matches in straight games but two of them were close. He beat Denmark's Philip Pawlowski 21-19 21-19 then edged out Czech Adam Mendrek 21-18 21-17.
In the first round he will face Rosario Maddaloni of Italy.
Michael Spencer-Smith fell at the final hurdle as he tried to join them in the main draw, losing 21-9 21-11 to third seed Kim Bruun of Denmark.
In the women's singles third qualifying seed Georgina Bland just failed to make it into the main draw. She won her opening contest easily enough but lost her final qualifier 15-21 21-12 21-14 against Denmark's Julie Davidsen.
In the mixed doubles Peter Mills and Alysssa Lim reached the main draw after a 21-6 20-22 21-11 win over Kek Jamnik and Maja Tvrdy of Slovenia.
They will start today's play with a bye and could meet team-mates Gary Fox in the second round later.
