Goffin, Troicki Win Bucharest Openers

Bucharest, Romania

Troicki© Raed KrishanViktor Troicki is making his second appearance in Bucharest.

Belgian David Goffin, approaching the anniversary of his breakthrough run at Roland Garros, recorded his first main draw win on clay since reaching the fourth round in Paris as a qualifier.

The 22 year old capitalised on four of five break points to beat Romanian wild card Adrian Ungur 6-3, 6-1 in 55 minutes on Monday at the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy in Bucharest. Goffin could next face 2011 champion Florian Mayer.

Eighth-seeded Serbian Viktor Troicki converted all three of his break points in a 7-6(5), 6-3 win over Australian Marinko Matosevic. Troicki, a former World No. 12, will look to win back-to-back matches for the first time this season when he faces the winner between Tobias Kamke and Paul-Henri Mathieu.

German Daniel Brands, making his first tour-level appearance as a direct entry this year, defeated Japan’s Tatsuma Ito 6-3, 6-4. Brands had qualified for seven straight ATP World Tour events starting with the 2013 season opener in Doha, where he reached the semi-finals (l. to Gasquet).

Sergiy Stakhovsky, Matthias Bachinger, Flavio Cipolla and Jaroslav Pospisil won in the final round of qualifying. Bachinger will open against top Romanian Victor Hanescu.
