MEMPHIS - Czech Jiri Vesely made short work of fifth-seeded Marinko Matosevic on Monday with a straight-sets win over the Australian in the first round of the US National Indoor Championships. Vesely, ranked 81st in the world, defeated the 54th-ranked Matosevic 6-3, 6-2, converting four of his seven break point chances to notch his second ATP Tour match win. Matosevic, who reached the semi-finals here last year in his Memphis debut, wasn't the only seed to fall on the first day of competition in the $647,675 tournament. US veteran Michael Russell rallied from a set down to beat seventh-seeded Michal Przysiezny of Poland 3-6, 6-3, 6-1. Russell, 35, posted his first ATP match win of 2014 and next faces American Tim Smyczek, who beat rising Australian talent Nick Kyrgios 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-3.–AFP
