Ellis targets two titles in Denmark

England's Marcus Ellis is top seed in the men's doubles and third seed in the mixed doubles at this weekend's Forza Denmark International in Frederikshaven.

Ellis partners Scotland's Paul Van Rietvelde in the men's doubles and they start with a bye, which leaves them waiting for Sweden's Magnus Sahlberg and Mattias Wigardt or a pair from tomorrow's qualifying in the second round.

In the mixed doubles Ellis and Alyssa Lim (pictured) are the third seeds as they look to improve on their runners-up spot at the French International. They also open with a bye with Denmark's Mikkel Normann and Nettie Skaarenborg or Sweden's Patrick Lundqvist and Amanda Wallin the second-round opponents.

Lim partners Alex Langley in the women's doubles, where they face a tricky start against last weekend's Portuguese winners Lena Grebok and Maria Helsbol of Denmark.

In the men's singles Toby Penty gets the chance to test himself with one of Europe's most experienced players in Denmark's sixth seed Joachim Persson. But before that young prospect Josh Green is top qualifying seed and begins his bid for a place in the main draw by taking on Dane Normann Simon. Green needs three wins to reach the main draw.

In the women's singles English National champion Sarah Walker takes on Denmark's No. 8 seed Line Kjaersfeldt while Sarah Milne meets another Dane, defending champion Sandra-Maria Jensen.
