World No.117 Frederico Gil beat 12th seed Marcel Granollers in the Barcelona Open 6-2, 6-2 in just over 70 minutes to upset the local resident. The 27 year-old Portuguese broke the Catalan's serve six times on his course to a dominant win. He has now improved his season's record to 9-9. Granollers came into the match confident of a win, but was very quickly checked back by the advancing right -hander. Granollers now has a 2-7 lifetime at the ATP World Tour 500 clay court tournament.
Australia's top ranked player Bernard Tomic and the youngest player in the Top 50 of the ATP rankings, capped a straight sets victory over Latvian Ernests Gulbis in just over an hour.
"I think I played well on my service games," 19-year-old Tomic said. He further added, "I am starting to move better on the clay and it is the best I've played so far. Hopefully in the next round (against Albert Montanes), I'll be ready to run and be physical with him. I think I'll need to play a little more aggressively and be patient at times."
