Cape Town - South Africa's Lloyd Harris bagged an impressive win in the first round of the Adelaide International on Monday.

Harris, who came through qualifying at the ATP 250 event, defeated Chile's world No 33 Christian Garin 7-6 (7/5), 3-6, 6-4 in the first round.

He will next face 39th-ranked Serbian Laslo Djere in the round of 16.

Harris entered the event ranked 99th in the ATP rankings, but improved to 91st when the rankings were updated on Monday.

The 22-year-old also performed admirably at the ATP Cup last week, losing a tight match 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 3-6 to Serbia's world No 34 Dusan Lajovic, beating Chile's world No 77 Nicolas Jarry 6-4, 6-4, before going down to French veteran and world No 57 Gilles Simon 6-2, 2-6, 2-6.
