Liam Broady won his first ATP Tour match since 2018 at the Sardinian Open in Cagliari

Liam Broady won his first ATP Tour match in three years with a first round victory at the Sardinian Open in Cagliari.

The 27-year-old, currently ranked No. 152 in the world, is having an impressive year on the Challenger Tour after reaching two finals.

However, he last won on the main tour against American Bjorn Fratangelo at the Miami Open in 2018.

The Stockport southpaw put that statistic to bed by beating Switzerland’s Marc-Andrea Huesler 6-1 6-3 in Italy.

He particularly had fun on Huesler’s serve, breaking twice in the first set and then three times in the second to get the job done in an hour and 19 minutes.

Broady, who has made two finals and a semi-final so far in 2021 on the second tier tour, will play fifth seed Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round.
