    World No. 36 Bernard Tomic improved to 2-0 against Denis Istomin on Monday. The 19-year-old converted three of 6 break points en route to a 6-4, 6-3 win in 63 minutes. The Australian held nine of 9 service games during the match.

    "Today I felt good," said Tomic. "I'm starting to learn how to play on clay. That's the important thing. If I play my tennis, (players) struggle with my game even on clay. I think this next six weeks will be very interesting to see how I go. And I think can do pretty good."
