The Bulgarian Open got under way today with four Scots tackling the qualifying rounds of the men's singles in Sofia.

Andrew Gilliland, Steven Stewart, Matthew Carder and Danny Leinster each need to win three rounds if they are to make it to the main draw.

Emma Cook and Viktoria Tsvetanova are in the women's singles qualifying with both needing just two wins to make the first round proper as there are only half as many entries as the men, who have 64 qualifiers.

Carder and Gilliland team up for the men's doubles first round tomorrow while Leister and Stewart have a first-round bye and will not play until tomorrow's evening session.

Martin Campbell and Patrick MacHugh are Scotland's big hopes. They are the second seeds and also start with a bye.

Cook and Tsvetanova tackle the women's doubles first round in the only event that doesn't require qualifying rounds. They face French pair Stacey Guerin and Delphine Lansac tomorrow afternoon.

In the mixed doubles Stewart and Tsvetanova face France's Vanmael Heriau and Emilie Beaujean in the first round tomorrow morning. Leinster and Cook will follow them into action against Russia's Sergey Molodov and Kristina Averkina.

The tournament runs from today until Thursday with results and schedules on www.tournamentsoftware.com
