Kohlschreiber silenced any critics with a straight sets win, taking the second round match 7-5 6-2. The often outspoken Italian had little to moan about here, beaten, as he was, comprehensively.
The earlier game was a little closer but eventually went the way the form book suggested it would. A tie break was required to separate Argentina’s Juan Monaco and Spain’s Daniel Munoz-De La Nava, Monaco taking that one 7-6.
The match’s second set wasn’t quite as tight, Monaco winning 6-3 to finish off a straight sets victory
