Washington: Putting aside off-court distractions in his first match since a fourth-round Wimbledon run, Australia's Bernard Tomic advanced to the round of 16 on Tuesday at the ATP Washington Open.
Tomic, who had an opening bye as the 14th seed, beat David Goffin 6-1, 6-3, avenging a first-round loss to the Belgian last year at Wimbledon and booking a third-round matchup with either American Ryan Harrison or Argentine top seed Juan Martin Del Potro, the 2009 US Open winner.
"I played not so bad," Tomic said. "Very tough conditions. Very difficult to play 100 percent on these courts because it's so hot and so humid."
