by ATP Staff|
The 20-year-old Vesely, winner of the ATP Star of Tomorrow Award presented by Emirates in 2013, capitalised on four of his seven break points to record his second tour-level win. Matosevic had reached the semi-finals last year on his Memphis debut.
American wild cards Ryan Harrison and Sam Querrey teamed up for a 7-5, 1-6, 10-4 victory over Benjamin Becker and Yen-Hsun Lu in first-round doubles action. Querrey won the Memphis doubles title with John Isner in 2010, after defeating his countryman in the singles final.
Belgian’s David Goffin and a trio of Americans - Denis Kudla, Alex Kuznetsov and Rajeev Ram - all won in the final round of qualifying earlier Monday. Goffin and Kuznetsov will meet in the first round, while Kudla faces Donald Young and Ram plays Marcos Baghdatis.
