Laslo Djere experienced few problems at the Swiss Open Gstaad on Tuesday when he knocked out Brazilian Thiago Seyboth Wild 6-4, 6-3 in 79 minutes. The seventh-seeded Serbian won 22 of 26 first-service points to record his 15th clay-court win of the season. He now plays Belgian Zizou Bergs in the second round.

Fifth seed Federico Delbonis lost five of his first-service point (29/34) in a trouble-free 6-3, 6-3 victory over Swiss wild card Leandro Riedi in 76 minutes. The Argentine, who has reached three ATP Tour clay-court semi-finals this year, including at last week’s Hamburg European Open (l. to Carreno Busta), next challenges Hugo Gaston.

The Frenchman recorded a 6-4, 6-2 win over Delbonis’ compatriot, Juan Manuel Cerundolo, this year’s Cordoba Open titlist (d. Ramos-Vinolas) in 79 minutes.

Elsewhere, Arthur Rinderknech, who this week competes at the ATP 250 event at a career-high No. 100 in the FedEx ATP Rankings, defeated Swiss wild card Dominic Stephan Stricker 6-4, 6-4 in 81 minutes. The Frenchman now prepares to face second-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, the 2018 runner-up (l. to Berrettini).

Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor struck 14 aces in a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6(1) win over Juan Ignacio Londero of Argentina in two hours and 14 minutes to set-up a clash against sixth seed Benoit Paire of France.
