Bernard Tomic is into the second round of the Eastbourne ATP event after beating Norbert Gombos 7-6 (7-3) 6-3.
Tomic, the world No.60, needed little more than an hour to get the better of qualifier and world No.90 Gombos, who could only convert one of three break point opportunities.
For Tomic it is a timely win ahead of Wimbledon next week and the third successive tournament the 24-year-old has registered a first-round victory.

Other winners on Monday included Donald Young, Kevin Anderson and Vasek Pospisil.
