Tomas Berdych made a successful start to his clay season with a victory over Spaniard Marcel Granollers.
It was a patchy start to the tournament, but Tomas Berdych secured a 7-5, 6-4 win over Marcel Granollers to earn a third-round spot at the Monte-Carlo Masters.
The Spaniard played better early in the first set, as Berdych struggled to find his footing, both figuratively and literally, on the dirt. Granollers had the chance to serve out the first set, but Berdych clawed his way to the break and secured another late-set break for the lead.
Granollers also squandered a 4-2 lead in the second set, as Berdych once again proved to be the better player in the most important moments of the match. The Czech reeled off the next four games to take the win in straight sets.
Berdych will take on an in-form Italian Fabio Fognini in the third round.
