Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic has captured his first ATP Tour win since the Australian Open held in January. Tomic defeated German Dustin Brown at the Barcelona Open on Tuesday to end his drought of six straight losses, including five consecutive first-round exits.

The Australian prevailed over the German in a three-set battle 7-5 4-6 6-2. World number 41 Tomic now has a 2-0 head-to-head record over the 32-year-old player from Germany.

Tomic fired six aces and won 72 percent behind both of his first and second service against Brown. The Australian converted 3-of-5 of his break point chances and saved 2-of-3 of Brown's break point tries.

It took an hour and 39 minutes for the clash to be concluded.

Hoping to score back-to-back wins

Bernard Tomic will be looking to potentially prolong even further his campaign in Barcelona. However, it won't be easy, as the Australian is set to face next world number Andy Murray. 24-year-old Tomic has yet to defeat Murray in his career, losing each of the four matches played against the British tennis player. It remains to be seen if he can shock the Barcelona Open top seed in the second-round. As the number seed of the tournament, Murray had a first-round bye.

No much problems for Dominic Thiem

World number nine Thiem has reached the last-16 stage of the Barcelona Open after a good performance on Tuesday.

The Austrian lost just five games on his way to defeating Briton Kyle Edmund in a second-round matchup 6-1 6-4.

The 23-year-old Austrian now has a 1-0 head-to-head record over the British tennis player as the match on Tuesday was their first ever ATP Tour meeting.

Thiem hit six aces and won 78 percent of points played behind his first serve.

He broke Edmund three times during the match, and saved each of six of the Briton's break point chances. The match lasted an hour and 20 minutes.

On verge of achieving a career-best result in Barcelona

Thiem has never made it past the round-of-16 at the Barcelona Open so far in his career. In his previous two attempts at the tournament in 2014 and 2015, he lost in the last-16 stage respectively the opening-round.

Thiem, a clay-court specialist, will certainly be looking to leave his mark this year on the clay courts of Barcelona.

Next up for the Austrian will be either another Briton Dan Evans or Mischa Zverev from Germany. That match is set to be played later on in Barcelona. Thiem will be the favorite to advance to the quarter-final no matter who wins the match between Evans and Zverev. ATP Tour
