NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Michael Russell beat fellow American and seventh-seeded Donald Young 1-6, 6-1, 6-4 Monday in the opening round at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.

The tournament, the only one held on grass courts in North America, features a number of Olympians from 10 different countries scheduled to play before heading to the London Games on Wimbledon's grass surface later this summer.

Young, the 57th-ranked player in the world coming into the week, is part of the U.S. Olympic team.
