NEWPORT, R.I., July 9 (UPI) -- American Michael Russell ousted No. 7 seed Donald Young and sixth-seeded Ryan Harrison advanced Monday at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.

Russell rallied to upend Young 1-6, 6-1, 6-4 and advance on the grass courts at Newport, R.I. Harrison battled past Ruben Bemelmans 7-6 (10-8), 6-7 (5-7), 7-5 in 2 hours, 48 minutes at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Nicolas Mahut of France, the 2007 Newport runner-up, beat Swiss Marco Chiudinelli 6-0, 7-6 (7-2).

Other winners Monday included American wild card Jack Sock, Israeli Dudi Sela and two-time Hall of Fame runner-up Olivier Rochus of Belgium, who squeezed past Japan's Go Soeda 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
