Tennis: Berdych through to round of 16 at Monte Carlo

Czech tennis player Tomáš Berdych defeated Spain’s Marcel Granollers 7-5, 6-4 in the second round of the ATP tournament in Monte Carlo on Wednesday and booked a place in the round of 16. The fourth-seeded Czech played his first match after a two-week break caused by a shoulder injury; he lost his service twice in the first set and made a series of errors but eventually won in one hour and 40 minutes. Berdych will next play either Italy’s Fabio Fognini or Alberto Ramos of Spain.
