GSTAAD, Switzerland -- Former top-10 Frenchman Richard Gasquet reached the second round, while fifth-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo came up a first-round loser Monday at the Swiss Open.

The seventh-seeded Gasquet grounded Uzbekistanian qualifier Farrukh Dustov 6-3, 6-4, while Robredo was sent packing by Portuguese Frederico Gil 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 on the clay courts at Roy Emerson Arena. Gasquet captured this event back in 2006.

The Swiss faithful were treated to a pair of wins on Day 2, as wild card Michael Lammer handled Jamaican Dustin Brown 7-5, 7-5 and wild card Alexander Sadecky overcame fellow countryman qualifier Yann Marti 7-5, 1-6, 6-0.

Additional opening-round wins came for Austrian qualifier Andreas Haider- Maurer and German Daniel Brands. Haider-Maurer's second-round opponent will be recent Stuttgart champion Albert Montanes, this week's fourth seed, while Brands should have his hands full with Gasquet in his next outing.

This week's top seeds are Russian Mikhail Youzhny, Spaniard Nicolas Almagro and Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci, who beat German Andreas Beck in last year's Gstaad title match.
