Youzhny blew a 4-2 lead, losing his serve twice and converted one of eight break point chances.
"I was very unfortunate to get Youzhny in the first round," said Tipsarevic, playing in his first event since the Australian Open. "I just stayed positive and it worked."
Both players held serve until the 12th game when Gabashvili won a break point after a replay showed Ferrero's shot was out.
