Defeat for Rusedski.

Greg Rusedski lost 6-2, 6-2 to the Czech Republic's Jiri Novak, whose best performances this year have come on clay, at Munich and Gstaad where he won both tournaments.

After losing the first set, Rusedski was broken in his third service game of the second set and soon lost serve again to fall 5-2 behind.

Hernman, seeded second in the tournament, started the second-round tie in confident fashion against 23-year-old Argentinian right-hander Guillermo Canas and wrapped up the first set 6-3 with little difficulty.

But Canas picked up his game in the second, using his strong forehand to good effect to take the set to a tie-break, which he won 7-4.

The game hung in the balance throughout the decider before Canas triumphed in another tie-break, 7-5.
