Young rallies to beat No. 6 seed Mannarino in Memphis Open

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Donald Young rallied from a break down in each of the last two sets Monday to defeat No. 6 seed Adrian Mannarino 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4) in the opening round of the Memphis Open.

Young served for the match at 5-3 in the third set but failed to hold. The American regrouped from there and erased a 3-1 deficit in the third-set tiebreak.

Mannarino had led 4-2 in the second set and 2-0 in the third.

In another Monday afternoon first-round match, Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan defeated Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-4, 6-4. Nishioka, who reached the quarterfinals of this event last year, will face No. 2 seed John Isner in the second round.

Kei Nishikori, who won the last four Memphis Open titles, isn't in the field this year.
