Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich recorded a convincing 6-3, 6-0 victory over Germany's Benjamin Becker and Bobby Reynolds of the US in the first round of the Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas on Wednesday morning. The Israelis' form in 2007 has been mediocre, with the duo only advancing to a single semifinal out of their first five tournaments. Ram and Erlich, who are currently ranked a disappointing No. 14 in the ATP doubles race, finished the last two seasons as No. 8 and No. 7, respectively, and will need a dramatic improvement in their results in the coming weeks if they are to emulate their past success. Ram and Erlich, who are seeded second at the Las Vegas tournament, will face Simon Aspelin and Robert Lindstedt in the quarterfinals, after the Swedish pair defeated Sanchai and Sonchat Ratiwatana of Thailand 6-3, 6-3.
