Germany's Florian Mayer is knocked out of the Swiss Open in round one by Marinko Matosevic.

Australia's Marinko Matosevic caused an upset at the Swiss Open in Basel this afternoon by recording a two-set victory over Florian Mayer.

Mayer, 29, is currently the world number 25 but he was unable to beat a player ranked 26 places below him.

Matosevic claimed two breaks of Mayer's serve during the opener which allowed him to open up a one-set lead with a 6-2 success.

He broke again early in the second set to put himself in the ascendancy. A second break soon followed and despite Mayer claiming one of those back, he was unable to prevent Matosevic from serving out 6-3.

He will now take on Kevin Anderson for a place in round three.
