The second day of the BT&T Atlanta Open was a smooth one as far as the seeds on show were concerned. Sixth seed Denis Istomin won, beating Rajeev Ram 6-1, 6-4. The other seed playing was Marinko Matosevic who beat Victor Estrella Burgos 6-0, 6-2.

The big match of the day in terms of home crowd excitement was the victory of Robby Ginepri, the American 2005 U.S Open semi-finalist, over Sergiy Stakhovsky who made his name knocking Roger Federer out of the second round of Wimbledon in 2013. Ginepri won 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-0. Ginepri will play top seeded compatriot John Isner in the next round.

Another American through was Jack Sock who beat Alejandro Gonzalez 6-2, 6-4. Tim Smyczek also made the round of 16 when he thrashed Ryan Harrison 6-0, 6-2.

Other winners were Benjamin Becker, Lukas Lacko, Illya Marchenko and Thiemo de Bakker.
