Defending Stanford Cup Champion and former number one in the world Jim Courier defeated Anders Jarryd 6-4, 6-3, while former Davis Cup Champion Magnus Larsson of

Jarryd had the first set even at 4-4 and the players were on serve when Courier was able to hold and then break Jarryd, to win the set.

In the second day of the Stanford Cup, Legendary Hall of Famer John McEnroe used his usual grit and determination to forge a 6-3, 6-2 victory over former U.S. Davis Cup standout Jimmy Arias, while 1992 Olympic silver medalist Wayne Ferreira got by 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash 6-2, 6-4.


At age 47 and the oldest competitor on the Outback Champions Series circuit, McEnroe continues to use his crafty skills to vie for the 2006 year-end No. 1 ranking on the Outback Champions Series. The lefty is just 500 points behind Jim Courier entering this fifth and final event. In order to hold off McEnroe to clinch the top position, Courier will need to finish in at least fourth place here at the Stanford Cup. Both players are off to strong starts here at River Oaks.
