Dominic Inglot: Out

Inglot - predominantly a doubles player - made it through qualifying in Bangkok to set up a clash with world number 119 Bogomolov.

And although he fired down 12 aces he was no match for his Russian opponent, who converted three of 12 break point chances to set up a comfortable 7-5 6-3 victory in 77 minutes.

Bogomolov will now face top seed David Ferrer.

Meanwhile, Feliciano Lopez ensured his place in the second round by seeing off the challenge of Lukas Lacko in straight sets.

The Spaniard was a 6-3 7-6 (7/3) winner in the showpiece game of the day, ensuring there were no shocks in the Malaysian capital.

Sixth seed Denis Istomin looked in impressive form as he sauntered into round two by easing past Pablo Andujar 6-3 6-2.

Former world number three Nikolay Davydenko advanced via the same score against lucky loser Sanam Singh and Alejandro Falla was 7-6 (7/4), 4-2 ahead against Rajeev Ram when the American retired with a hamstring injury.

Vasek Pospisil was the first player to reach the quarter-final stage after seeing off Michael Yani 6-3 7-5 in a little under two hours, with Julien Benneteau later following him by disposing of Matthew Ebden.
