Sousa, Albot Advance In Gstaad

Moldovan Radu Albot grit his teeth on Tuesday to knock out 2013 champion Mikhail Youzhny at the J. Safra Sarasin Swiss Open Gstaad. Albot came within two points of losing at 6/6 in the second set tie-break against the former World No. 8, but held his nerve to win 4-6, 7-6(6), 7-5 in two hours and 52 minutes for a second-round clash against top seed and 2015 finalist David Goffin.

Joao Sousa, who was a quarter-finalist in 2015, beats Santiago Giraldo on Tuesday in Gstaad.
Elsewhere, eighth-seeded Portuguese Joao Sousa lost just one of his first service points (23/24) to defeat Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 6-3, 6-3 and will next challenge 2009 and 2012 titlist Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil or Swiss Henri Laaksonen.

Two days on from reaching his eighth ATP World Tour final (3-8 record) at the SkiStar Swedish Open, Alexandr Dolgopolov ran out of gas. Brazilian Thiago Monteiro struck 14 aces and saved seven of nine break points in a 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-3 win over two hours and 52 minutes.
