ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) Former champion Mikhail Youzhny of Russia came back from a break down in the deciding set to defeat Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia in the first round of the Zagreb Indoors on Tuesday.

Sixth-seeded Youzhny, the 2012 champ, was 4-3 down facing Kavcic on serve, and rallied to win 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 for his first singles victory this year. He lost in the opening rounds in Doha and the Australian Open.

Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Go Soeda of Japan also advanced.
