ATP Tour
Stefanos Tsitsipas in action

Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas had little trouble seeing off Guido Andreozzi in his opening match at the Estoril Open, but Gael Monfils dug himself out of a hole.

Greek Tsitsipas broke once in the first set and twice in the second, although Andreozzi also managed a break in the second set, to win 6-3, 6-4 in just under an hour and a half.

Next up for the 20-year-old is Joao Domingues after the Portuguese qualifier advanced when John Millman from Australia was forced to retire injured while 6-3, 2-1 down.

Third seed Monfils found himself in a spot of bother against Reilly Opelka as he lost the first set and also found it tough going with the wind.

But once he came to grip with the conditions, he swept to a 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory and up next is Alejandro Davidovich after the Spanish qualifier stunned Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 6-2.
