Somdev, ranked 566, came back from a set down to beat USA's Reynolds 6-7, 7-5, 6-4 in the second round on Wednesday, to extend his winning streak to 12.

The 23-year-old Indian, who created history when he defended his NCAA US Collegiate title in May, is unbeaten in tour events this year, pocketing three Futures events in the USA.

Somdev next faces Italy's Andrea Stoppini, who was a 6-1, 7-6 winner over USA's Bryan Koniecko.
