FORMER British One number Greg Rusedksi hopes Ryan Peniston can build on his latest shock success at Queen's.

The Great Wakering ace stunned French number one and world number 37 Ugo Humbert with a straight sets win at the cinch Championships this afternoon.

And ex world number four Rusedski told Echosport he was impressed by the 27-year-old's classy performance on centre court.

"I thought he was great," said Rusedksi.

"I watched the match from start to finish and he was consistent, calm and composed."

Peniston reached the quarter finals at Queen's last summer but was unable to build on his fine grass court season due to a wrist problem.

And Rusedksi hopes Peniston will be able to build on any momentum he gathers this time around.

"It's good to see him healthy again because last year he was unlucky," said Rusedksi.

"He had a fantastic run here and did well on the grass but then wasn't really back playing until the US Open.

"Hopefully he can build on the momentum here and he plays (Maxime) Cressy or Holger Rune in the next round now which is a great opportunity.

"But hopefully he will keep this form going and stay healthy too."
