Umag - Fifth-seeded Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic has needed a late rally to beat 100th-ranked Diego Sebastian Schwartzman 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (2) in the first round of the Croatia Open on Tuesday.

Schwartzman was serving at 4-3 in the third set and the Argentine even had game point to increase his lead. However, Rosol broke back to level and then comfortably won the tiebreaker.

Another Argentine, eighth-seeded Carlos Berlocq beat Slovakia's Andrej Martin 7-6 (4), 6-3.

Though there were no service breaks in the opening set, Berlocq took a commanding 4-1 lead in the second set on his way to a place in the second round.

Sixth-seeded Andreas Seppi also advanced after beating fellow Italian Marco Cecchinato 6-2, 6-7 (2), 6-1.
