Becker through in Zagreb

Germany's Benjamin Becker saw off the challenge of Holland's Jesse Huta Galung to progress to the second round of the PBZ Zagreb Indoors.

Becker dropped the first set on a tie break but fought back to claim the second with relative ease before a tie break in the third saw him edge to a 6-7 (4/7) 6-3 7-6 (8/6) victory.

In the other first round match, fifth seed Marin Cilic claimed a comfortable 6-4 6-4 win over Mate Delic in 71 minutes.
