AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- No. 8-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber rallied for a three-set victory Monday at the Heineken Open tennis tournament in New Zealand.

Kohlschreiber suffered his only two service breaks in the first set of a 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 win over Carlos Berlocq. Kohlschreiber had five double faults and landed just 53 percent of his first serves but had four breaks against Berlocq in the second and third sets to advance.

Tommy Robredo also needed to come from behind against Michael Venus before winning 6-7 (6-8), 6-3, 6-0. Robredo lost only four points on serve after the first set. In the third set he lost one point while serving and only four of 16 when Venus served.

Santiago Giraldo claimed a 6-2, 6-4 win over Daniel Gimeno-Traver in Monday's other match. Giraldo saved all five break points he faced and finished off all three he had against Gimeno-Traver.
