Bellucci seeks to defend his title in Santiago.

Thomaz Bellucci began the defence of his Movistar Open title in Chile in style with a 6-2 6-2 win over Filippo Volandri on Monday.

Third-seed Bellucci was comfortable in his first-round match in Santiago, winning all five break points created to move into the second round where he meets Rui Machado, of Portugal, or home wildcard Felipe Rios.

Spanish sixth-seed Tommy Robredo came from behind to beat Portuguese player Frederico Gil 2-6 6-3 6-4 despite enduring an horrendous start. He faces Ricardo Mello next after the Brazilian beat Spain’s Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo.

Juan Ignacio Chela had to dig deep at times to overcome Chile’s Jorge Aguilar 6-3 7-5 while Igor Andreev also moves into the second round.
