Frenchman Jeremy Chardy cruised into the second round of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel with a 7-5, 6-0 win over Australian Matthew Ebden on Monday.

Chardy, a quarter-finalist on his one previous visit to Acapulco, capitalised on four of his five break points for the 65-minute victory. He will face the winner between eighth-seeded Canadian Vasek Pospisil and last week’s Rio de Janeiro finalist Alexandr Dolgopolov.

Dudi Sela also won in straight sets, defeating Colombian qualifier Alejandro Falla 6-1, 6-4 in one hour and 16 minutes. The 5’9” Sela will confront either 6’10” John Isner or 6’11” Ivo Karlovic for a place in the quarter-finals.

American Sam Querrey overcame Mexican wild card Tigre Hank in the last match on Cancha Central, prevailing 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-3 in just under two hours. The 22-year-old Hank, No. 642 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, was making his ATP World Tour main draw debut.

In doubles, top seeds Lukasz Kubot and Robert Lindstedt made their way into the quarter-finals after Jurgen Melzer's shoulder injury forced the Austrian and partner Grigor Dimitrov to withdraw prior to the match.

Third seeds Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot also advanced, defeating the British pair of Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins 7-6(3), 6-3.

The ATP World Tour 500 tournament is being played on hard courts, after 20 years on clay. Three-time champion David Ferrer and Acapulco debutant Andy Murray are the top two seeds in the singles draw.
