The fifth-seeded Mayer took advantage of seven aces to get past Bagnis in just over an hour at The Fairmont Acapulco Princess. Mayer had four break opportunities and converted on three of them.

Also advancing was No. 7 seed Marcel Granollers of Spain, who defeated Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 6-2.
