    Dolgopolov downs Tomic at Monte-Carlo Masters Alexandr Dolgopolov eases past Bernard Tomic on Sunday in Monte-Carlo. Dolgopolov is through to a second-round meeting with Juan Martin Del Potro.

    Alexandr Dolgopolov defeated Bernard Tomic 6-2, 6-4 in the first round of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters on Sunday afternoon. Dolgopolov held all nine of his service games despite putting in a horrendous 32 percent of his first serves as he advanced in exactly one hour.

    The Ukrainian served even worse in set one; 26 percent to be exact. Tomic, however, went in with a 1-4 lifetime record against his opponent and he never could gain any confidence. The 20-tear-old Australian dropped serve at 1-1 and did not recover, as he missed both of his break-point chances in the opener.

    Dolgopolov also broke at 1-1 in the second to take complete control of the match. That was the world No. 22's final scalp of the Tomic serve, but it proved to be enough because he faced only one more break point and saved it. Dolgopolov wrapped up the proceedings with a clinching hold at 5-4.

    Tomic finished with four aces and four double-faults while serving at 62 percent. Dolgopolov recorded one ace and no doubles on his way to a second-round showdown against Juan Martin Del Potro.
