ATP Wrap: Diego Schwartzman survives Hamburg scare but Maximilian Marterer dumped out

Diego Schwartzman watches on

Second seed Diego Schwartzman made a winning start at the German Open in Hamburg, but he had to work incredibly hard for it.

The Argentininian battled to a 6-4 2-6 6-2 win over young Norwegian Casper Ruud, although he was forced to save six break points along the way.

Schwartzman, though, will welcome any win at the moment given he went into the game on the back of a run of four defeats in his previous five ATP Tour matches.

He’ll face German qualifier Daniel Masur in the next round, who earned his sport courtesy of his first Tour-level win of the season, shocking Maximilian Marterer 6-3 6-4.

Defending champion Leonardo Mayer is also off to a good start after dismissing Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-3- 6-3 in under an hour and a half.

However, fourth seed Damir Dzumhur is out, falling 6-2 6-4 defeat by Slovakian qualifier Jozef Kovalik, and former world number three David Ferrer was stunned by 17-year-old wild-card Rudolf Molleker 7-5 5-7 6-3.

In Gstaad, the action is just really warming up with seeds Fabio Fognini, Andrey Rublev, Borna Coric, and Roberto Bautista Agut all getting byes into the next round.

However, one notable story saw 17-year-old Canadian wild-card Felix Auger-Aliassime advance into the second round past Guido Anderozzi
