Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico, 25 February 2015 |

Bernard Tomic has come through a tough match to advance to the second round of the ATP hardcourt event in Acapulco.

Tomic, currently ranked 42nd, recovered to beat Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 3-6 6-4 6-4.

The victory, achieved in one hour and 35 minutes, sets up a second-round meeting with eighth seed Benjamin Becker of Germany.

Across the globe in Doha, Daria Gavrilova’s run came to an end; having won three matches to qualify, the 20-year-old lost 6-4 5-7 6-4 to Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina.
