Date: Monday, 12 September, 2016
Dennis Novikov will face Mikelis Libietis in the Round of 32 of 2016 Cary Challenger (hard).
Dennis Novikov, the defending champion of Cary Challenger, begins his participation against 24-year-old Latvian Mikelis Libietis.
Libietis is on 404th positiоn in ATP Rankings and is quite famous for the tennis public. In recent months he participated in tournaments in Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, and won two of them. But his rivals were well below the level of Dennis Novikov and he has no chance in the upcoming form, although it is in good shape.
Dennis Novikov is on the verge of the top 100. The 22-year-old American will aim to win the home tournament. At the end of July in Toronto, he gave a lot of resistance to Kei Nishikori after losing 4:6, 5:7 in the second round. Novikov almost every week up against good players, so it is unlikely to be a problem for him to win this game.
