Melzer Falls In Acapulco Opener; Andujar Rallies

Acapulco, Mexico

Portugal's Joao Sousa knocked out No. 5 seed Jurgen Melzer 6-4, 6-3 in the first round of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel on Monday in Acapulco. Sousa won 76 per cent of his first serve points in the 83-minute upset win.

Pablo Andujar overcame a slow start to defeat qualifier Dusan Lajovic 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. Andujar broke the Serb twice in the decisive set to advance in two hours and 21 minutes. The win marked just the Spaniard's second tour-level victory in eight matches this season.

Qualifier Martin Alund edged wild card Daniel Garza 7-6(7), 7-5 in one hour and 56 minutes.  Alund reached his first ATP World Tour semi-final two weeks ago at the Brasil Open 2013 in Sao Paulo (l. to Nadal).
