Title holder Haas wins opening match at BMW Open
MUNICH (AP) — Second-seeded title holder Tommy Haas defeated Alejandro Falla 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals of the BMW Open.
Haas is recovering from a shoulder injury and said it was still not fully healed, “but a lot better than in the past months or weeks.”
Haas will next meet seventh-seeded Andreas Seppi, who beat qualifier Albert Ramos 6-3, 6-4.
Top-seeded Fabio Fognini defeated wild-card entry Dustin Brown 7-6 (4), 6-2 and “lucky loser” Ricardas Berankis upset Jurgen Melzer 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-6 (6).
