Raul Must is through to the second round, where he later Friday will meet either Arnaud Merkle, France or Malaysian Jhotiswaran Kapupathevan.
— The first match is often a really hard match. I have to get used to the conditions in the hall, and I am happy with a two set win, Must says.
— Second set was nervous, so I happy that I could overcome that feeling. I am quite often getting nervous when the first pressure is off. When I win the first game, it is often much harder for me. In Estonia in my home tournament I want to do well.
