Seeds tumble in Estoril but Stefanos Tsitsipas safely into second round
Seeds Robin Haase, Albert Ramos-Vinolas, and Leonardo Mayer have all been early casualties in Estoril.
Sixth seed Robin Haase lost 6-4 3-6 6-3 to Britain’s world number 103 Cameron Norrie, and fifth seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas was beaten 6-2 6-4 by Argentina’s Federico Delbonis.
Another Argentinian, the seventh seed Leonardo Mayer, was beaten 3-6 7-6 6-4 by Chilean Nicolas Jarry.
There were no such worries for Stefanos Tsitsipas, though, who followed up his strong Barcelona showing with a maiden win at Estoril.
The Greek youngster, who lost the Barcelona final to Rafael Nadal, defeated Spaniard Pablo Andujar in straight sets.
“I felt good with my tennis. I was pumped for another clay court match after a good tournament in Barcelona,” said Tsitsipas.
“I knew it was going to be a tough match against Pablo (Andujar), he won a title a few weeks ago in Marrakech.
“He is a solid baseliner and knows this surface very well. I managed to change a few things in my game and get him out of his comfort zone. That worked and it gave me the win.”
Meanwhile, Tunisia’s Malek Jaziri set up a second round clash with world number four Marin Cilic at the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open with a 6-1 6-2 win over Turkey’s world number 334 Marsel Ilhan.
