    Verdasco falters, Kohlschrieber advances Marinko Matosevic upended Spaniard Fernando Verdasco, while No. 16 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber earned a spot in the Monte-Carlo third round.

    Marinko Matosevic def. Fernando Verdasco 7-5, 6-3

    It was more bad news for Fernando Verdasco, as the Madrid native fell in the first round to Australian Marinko Matosevic. The first set was a mess of service breaks, with Verdasco racing out to an early 5-2 lead, only to lose his serve three consecutive times to give Matosevic the set.

    Matosevic seemed poised to run through the second set also, as he reeled off four more games in the second set. Verdasco got one of the breaks back and actually managed to hold a couple of times, but he never caught up to the Australian.

    Matosevic's win sends him into the second round against 8-time defending champion Rafael Nadal.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber (16) def. Pablo Andujar 6-2, 2-6, 7-6(3)

    Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber came back from the brink, saving a match point before dispatching Spaniard Pablo Andujar to advance to the third round.

    Andujar seemed on track for an upset win over the German. After Kohlschreiber took the first set, Andujar came storming back to take the second set. The Spaniard was also in firm control of the third set, holding a 5-2 advantage.

    Andujar had one match point on Kohlschreiber's serve, with the German trying to stay alive at 4-5, but the Spaniard wasted the opportunity with an error.

    Once Kohlschreiber got to the breaker, he showed his experience by out-classing Andujar from the baseline.
