Tomic victorious in all-Australian affair



Bernard Tomic won the all-Australian night match with the country's number one ranked player Marinko Matosevic, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round of the Sydney International on Tuesday.

Tomic continued his impressive unbeaten start to the southern summer season, including the prized scalp of world number one Novak Djokovic at last week's Hopman Cup mixed teams event in Perth.

Spaniard Feliciano Lopez recovered from losing the opening set tiebreaker to knock out French seventh seed Jeremy Chardy, 6-7 (2/7), 7-5, 6-3, while Australian wild card John Millman surprised Spaniard Tommy Robredo 6-3, 6-4.

Czech sixth seed Radek Stepanek accounted for Spanish qualifier Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in straight sets and Finland's defending champion Jarkko Nieminen eased past German qualifier Bjorn Phau for the loss of one game.

Italy's Fabio Fognini eliminated Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets, with the Bulgarian coming off losing to Andy Murray in last weekend's Brisbane International final.
