VIENNA -- Seventh-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber has defeated Alejandro Falla of Colombia 6-0, 6-3 in the first round of the Bank Austria Trophy.

The German hit five aces Monday, losing his serve once on the only break point he faced, in the second set.

Jan Hajek of the Czech Republic also reached the second round, ousting Pere Riba of Spain 6-0, 6-2. Hajek will next play second-seeded Marin Cilic, who had a bye in the opening round.

Andreas Seppi of Italy defeated Martin Fischer of Austria 6-3, 6-3 to set up a second-round match against either Andreas Haider-Maurer or the former top-ranked Thomas Muster, who is making his comeback to the ATP tour at age 43.
