"His serve was working really well for him; not only really hard but with good placement and I could not get a good read on it," Haas said. "Also serving and volleying on second serve and mixing it up, that really surprised me. I played good at the times I needed. The first match is always tough anyway because you never know how you're going to feel."
Eighth-seeded Jeremy Chardy's losing streak extended to six matches on tour when the Frenchman was eliminated by Bjorn Phau of Germany 6-3, 6-1.
