Argentine Delbonis advances

CASABLANCA, Morocco — The sixth-seeded Federico Delbonis of Argentina edged Canadian qualifier Filip Peliwo 6-2 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 yesterday to reach the quarterfinals of the Grand Prix Hassan II.

Delbonis, who won the Brazil Open last month, won six straight games to take the first set and lead 2-0 in the second. But Peliwo, the 2012 world junior champion, fought back to force a tiebreaker and leveled at one set apiece. In the third, Delbonis earned the decisive break at 4-4.

Also, Aleksandr Nedovyesov of Kazakhstan and Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic advanced to the second round. Vesely defeated Leonardo Mayer of Argentina 6-4 6-3 and Nedovyesov earned his first victory on the main tour by rallying from a 5-2 deficit in the opening set to stun the seventh-seeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands 7-6 (8-6) 6-4.

The Spanish trio of Guillermo García-López, Albert Montañés and Pablo Carreño Busta of Spain also won their first-round matches.
