Alexander Shevchenko of Kazakhstan eliminated No. 7 seed Fabian Marozsan of Hungary 6-4, 7-6 (4) in opening-round action at the Gonet Geneva Open on Monday in Switzerland.

Shevchenko led the second set 5-2 when Marozsan charged back. The Hungarian saved a match point in the 10th game before tying the set 5-5. Once they reached the tiebreaker, Shevchenko took a 5-0 lead but nearly squandered it before finishing off his opponent.

Shevchenko, who hit six aces Monday, next will face Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori, who defeated Marcos Giron 6-3, 6-3. Austrian qualifier Sebastian Ofner rallied past Australia’s Rinky Hijikata 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, while Italy’s Flavio Cobolli beat Russia’s Aslan Karatsev 7-5, 6-1.

Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann led Great Britain’s Andy Murray 7-5, 4-1 when rain interrupted the match and postponed it until Tuesday.
