Third-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka bulled his way into the third round of the US Open on Wednesday with a 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7/1) victory over Thomaz Bellucci.

Switzerland's Wawrinka, the reigning Australian Open champion, was dominant on serve through two sets, but Bellucci broke him twice in the third to force the fourth.
