Janko Tipsarevic wins his first match of the clay season against Albert Montanes at the Monte Carlo Masters.

World number eight Janko Tipsarevic has progressed to round three of the Monte Carlo Masters by defeating Albert Montanes this afternoon.

The Serbian got his clay court season off to a positive start, breaking Montanes on two occasions as he claimed the opening set 6-2.

The second set appeared to be heading for a similar outcome as Tipsarevic served to win the match with a 5-2 advantage.

However, his Spanish opponent responded by claiming a break of serve to close the gap to 5-3.

Montanes failed to capitalise on his first break though, as he went on to surrender his next service game for Tipsarevic to claim a 6-2 6-3 victory.

Tipsarevic will now face Gilles Simon in the next round following the Frenchman's win over Frederico Gil earlier today.
