    (2) Andy Roddick def. (WC) Marinko Matosevic 6-3, 6-2

    Second seed Andy Roddick earned his first victory of the 2011 season with a 6-3, 6-2 success against Australian wildcard Marinko Matosevic. The 28-year-old American struck 5 aces and held 8 of 9 service games through 72 minutes of play. After taking the opening set, the World No. 8 quickly built a 5-0 edge in set two. With the first-round win, Roddick notched his sixth consecutive victory at the Brisbane International.

    “I feel healthy and fit probably for the first time since May last year, so that’s a good thing,” Roddick explained. “There’s nothing I’m trying to cover up, I don’t feel short on practice, I don’t question the last month that I’ve put in and that’s a first for a little while.”

    He is scheduled to face Alexandr Dolgopolov for a place in the quarterfinal. The Ukranian downed Russian Igor Andreev in the first round, 6-4, 6-2.

    (7) Florian Mayer def. (WC) Bernard Tomic 6-2, 6-2

    Seventh seed Florian Mayer put in a strong effort Monday afternoon, having ousted hometown hope Bernard Tomic, 6-2, 6-2. The 27-year-old German tallied 12 aces and four service breaks in under an hour. The 18-year-old Australian had problems on the return, unable to win more than 3 points off the Mayer serve.

    Mayer will meet either veteran Arnaud Clement or qualifier Ricardas Berankis in the next round.
