MONTPELLIER, France (AP) - Fifth-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland served 14 aces as he rallied to beat Dustin Brown of Germany 2-6, 7-6 (1), 7-5 in the first round of the Open Sud de France on Monday.

Janowicz, who dropped serve three times and saved five break points, next plays either Frenchman Benoit Paire or 169th-ranked Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia.

Seventh-seeded Joao Sousa of Portugal had little trouble getting past wild-card entry Laurent Lokoli, beating him 6-2, 6-4 in just over one hour.

He next faces Germany’s Tobias Kamke, who overcame wild card Vincent Millot of France 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 in a scrappy contest.

Neither managed to serve an ace and they dropped serve six times each.
