American world No. 73 and U.S. Champion Todd Harrity cruised to victory in last night’s first round of the PSA Paraguay Open, a $10, 000 tournament hosted in Asuncion, Paraguay, this weekend.

The fourth seeded Harrity drew Guatemalan qualifier Josue Enriquez as his first-round opponent. Harrity dominated in straight games, defeating the world No. 157 11-1, 11-7, 11-5 in thirty-six minutes.

For the quarterfinals, Harrity is set to play the sixth-seeded Welshman Peter Creed, world No. 76, for the third time in their professional careers. Harrity has bested Creed in their two previous meetings: in 2014’s Rochester Pro-Am and 2010’s World University Championship. The two play for a third time this evening at 8pm local time.

Harrity’s fellow American in the Paraguay Open, Mike Lewis—Dartmouth graduate and world No. 217—fell in rapid games to fifth-seeded Dutchman Piedro Schweertman.
