Dustin Brown of Germany saved a match point to upset sixth-seeded Nikolay Davydenko of Russia 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (7) in the first round of the Mercedes Cup on Monday.

Brown, who has received a wild card invitation to play in the Stuttgart tournament, broke his opponent early in the third set, but allowed Davydenko to fight back. The Russian won a match point on his serve but was eventually overcome by the German.

Brown led 5-2 in the tiebreaker before wasting a match point and allowed Davydenko to level at 6-6. The Russian's ninth double-fault gave Brown his third match point as he served out the match.

Also Monday, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez swept past fellow Spaniard Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo 6-2, 6-3.
