VINA DEL MAR, Chile, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Former three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten was among Monday's round-robin losers at the Movistar Open in Chile.

Spaniard Oscar Hernandez defeated the former top-ranked Kuerten of Brazil, 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-3).

Kuerten, 30, was making his 2007 debut this week after being limited to just one ATP match last year due to hip problems.

In other Day-1 action, fifth-seeded Peruvian Luis Horna beat Italian Alessio Di Mauro 6-1, 6-2 and Argentine Mariano Zabaleta defeated his countryman Juan-Pablo Guzman 6-3, 6-4.
