    Kohlschriber sends Bellucci packing on opening day in Monte Carlo Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber dispatched Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci in easy straight sets to advance to the second round.

    No. 16 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber required an hour and fourteen minutes to send off struggling Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 6-2.

    Bellucci had one good tournament this year so far, a third round run at the Miami Masters. Otherwise it’s been a series of first and second round losses, including a first round ouster at the Dallas Challenger.

    Kohlschrieber has been equally patchy in 2013, with one great result and many early-round losses. The German made the final in Auckland, but he’s had a recent run of bad form. Sunday’s win marks his first match win since the Australian Open.

    The German broke Bellucci five times in the brief match, with the Brazilian struggling badly on serve. Bellucci also secured a pair of breaks, but it wasn’t nearly enough to make a dent in Kohlschreiber’s game.

    Kohlschreiber awaits the winner of Jeremy Chardy or his qualifier opponent, to be determined.
