However, Tipsarevic got himself back into the contest with a comfortable 6-2 triumph in the third.

He then got back on terms with a 6-3 win in the fourth before completing the turnaround 6-2 in the decider.

Tipsarevic will now meet Brian Baker in the second round following the American's straight-sets win over Jan Hajek.
