Aljaz Bedene set up a second-round meeting with Alexander Zverev at the Shanghai Masters but Kyle Edmund was sent packing by Marin Cilic.
Bedene, ranked 48 in the world, made light work of Italian Paolo Lorenzi, winning 6-1 6-4 in China, but Edmund has still failed to defeat a top-10 player after he went down 6-3 7-6 (7-5) to Croatian big-hitter Cilic.

The 28-year-old British No 2 was too strong all round for world No 39 Lorenzi, sending down 10 aces and winning a healthy 89 per cent of points on his first serve.
That allowed him to put pressure on his opponent's delivery and he broke twice to take the first set in just 29 minutes and a solitary break in the second saw him seal the win in comfortable fashion.
Third seed and world No 4 Zverev is waiting in the next round after the German was handed a first-round bye.

Wimbledon finalist Cilic reached round three with victory over Edmund, who produced another gutsy performance but failed to take advantage of half chances and was ultimately undone by the experienced 29-year-old.
The Briton matched Cilic in the second set and threatened to break the big Croatian's serve several times but could not get over the line.
Kyle Edmund will look back and think 'yes, that was another good performance'. But an area that he can focus on moving forward is just stay true yourself, even on the biggest points. The break points that he played, he didn't really back himself in terms of how he wanted to play it. A lot of positives though. I thought he served very well, especially in that second set. He knows he has that fire power, but Cilic is a class act.

Cilic was joined in the next round by Juan Martin del Potro who dispatched young Russian Andrey Rublev 6-3 6-4.
Seventh seed Pablo Carreno Busta was beaten in the second round 7-5 7-5 by fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas while 15th seed Lucas Pouille fell 7-6 (9-7) 6-3 to Fabio Fognini.
John Isner beat Serbian qualifier Dusan Lajovic 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (8-6) on a day with temperatures soaring past 32 degrees while Jack Sock, the 14th seed, retired in his match because of dehydration against Ukrainian qualifier Alexandr Dolgopolov leading 4-6 6-1 2-1.
US Open finalist Kevin Anderson defeated Adrian Mannarino 6-3 6-1, Ryan Harrison beat local wildcard Zhang Ze 6-2 6-3, and Sam Querrey came through against Yuichi Sugita 6-3 6-2.
