Third seed Nicolas Almagro progressed to the third round of the German Tennis Championships in Hamburg with a straightforward 6-3 6-3 victory over home player Tobias Kamke.

The Spaniard broke once in the opening set and then on three occasions in the second as he completed a comfortable day's work and could now face compatriot Feliciano Lopez in the next round.

Two seeded players did depart the tournament on Tuesday, though, with Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine - the seventh seed - beaten in straight sets by Germany's Florian Mayer 6-3 6-4.

Eighth seed Jeremy Chardy also made an early exit as he was seen off by Dmitry Tursunov, the Russian edging a close encounter 6-4 7-6 (7/1).

Chardy's fellow Frenchman Benoit Paire was successful, the ninth seed making light work of Albert Montanes with a one-sided 6-1 6-4 success.

Gael Monfils beat 2010 Hamburg champion Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan 6-3 6-3 to make the second round of the clay-court tournament - Golubev had to qualify for this year's event.

Among other first-round winners were Federico Delbonis of Argentina, Robin Haase of Netherlands, Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia, Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany and three Spaniards; Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Albert Ramos and Marcel Granollers.
