Zagreb - Sergiy Stakhovsky from Ukraine has defeated Borna Coric from Croatia 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the second round of the Zagreb Indoors tournament on Monday.

Stakhovsky, who won the tournament in 2008 as lucky loser, won five games in a row in the first set, and saved a break point before closing the match.

Coric held serve only four times and converted 2 out of 12 break points.

"It's not the first time that I failed to take the chances, my opponent did," Coric said.

Ricardas Berankis from Lithuania also advanced beating Lukas Lacko from Slovakia, 6-0, 6-2 in just 41 minutes.

Lacko, a runner-up in Zagreb in 2012, won only 20 out of 71 points and had constant problems returning serve.
