VIENNA, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- No. 7-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber won his first seven games Monday en route to a first-round victory at the Bank Austria Tennis Trophy tournament in Vienna.

Kohlschreiber handled Alejandro Falla 6-0, 6-3 in a brisk 55 minutes. He swept through the first set by taking 74 percent of the points. He didn't lose a game until Falla held serve in the match's eighth game.

Falla then collected his only break of the day but Kohlschreiber broke right back. He went ahead in the set with an eighth-game break and then served to finish the match.

Jan Hajek was even more efficient, taking out Pere Riba 6-0, 6-2 in 47 minutes. Hajek won 65 percent of the points in the match and lost only nine points in seven service games. He didn't face a break point.

Andreas Seppi topped Martin Fischer 6-3, 6-3, taking 70 percent of the points on serve.

The Bank Austria tournament carries a total purse of $900,000. The champion, to be determined Sunday, will take home $145,000.
