Bastad - Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay has won for just the fourth time this year when he ousted sixth-seeded Jeremy Chardy of France 6-2, 6-2 in under an hour in the first round of the Swedish Open on Tuesday.

Chardy was coming off a fourth-round appearance at Wimbledon.

Another player to end a drought was eighth-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain, who won for the first time since April at the expense of Dustin Brown of Germany, 6-3, 6-4.

Carlos Berlocq of Argentina began his title defense with a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over Julian Reister of Germany.

Victor Hanescu of Romania advanced in straight sets to line up top seed and two-time former champion David Ferrer, who had a first-round bye.

Two qualifiers, Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain and Radu Albot of Moldova, also won, and two local wild cards, Elias Ymer and Christian Lindell, earned their first wins on the ATP Tour.
