Jordan McKeown again underlined his reputation as one of the rising stars of local tennis at the Boat Club last night when he sealed a place in the main draw at the Keys Finance Ulster Championship.

The Bangor teenager overcame more experienced rival Matthew O'Boyle 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 after coming back from 2-5 down in the third-set tie-break to book a place in the quarter-finals in which he will face reigning Ulster junior champion Peter Corrie.

Another promising junior, Windsor's Jakob Robb also progressed to the main draw of the competition last night after defeating Boat Club's Cian McDonnell to set up a meeting with Karl Donaldson.

All the seeds are in last eight action tonight, with men's title-holder Przemek Stec and ladies champion Lucy Octave facing Stephen McCausland and Christine Duncan respectively.
