Eighth seed Ivan Dodig fell on his Bucharest debut to German qualifier Daniel Brands 7-6(4), 6-2 in one hour and 41 minutes. The Croatian failed to capitalize on all the break point opportunities he got. Brands will next face a fellow qualifier in Estonian Jurgen Zopp, who hit six aces en route to beating Romanian wild card Victor Crivoi 6-3, 6-3 in 87 minutes.
Sixth-seeded Italian Andreas Seppi came back from a set down and broke four times to beat French qualifier Guillaume Rufin 1-6, 7-6(5), 6-4 in just under two and a half hours. Israeli Dudi Sela defeated No.1 Romanian Adrian Ungur 7-6(2), 6-2 to set up a second-round meeting with top seed Gilles Simon, a two-time champion here. Also, wild card Marius Copil was the only Romanian to move through to the second round. Copil converted three of his 12 break points to defeat German Tobias Kamke 6-3, 6-2.
