"Those break points [at 1-2] were important because I felt like if he had have got that early and been up a break 3-1 it's a whole different story", Tomic told Tennis Atlantic.

Bernard Tomic has won his first ATP Tour match since bowing out of the Australian Open in the first round and sparking a war of words with Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt. He has lost both matches since winning the ASB Classic in January for his first ATP title.

"Those matches in Kooyong kind of don't count", Tomic said.

Despite his banishment from Davis Cup side, Tomic recalled his tight four-set loss to big-serving American Isner at Kooyong in 2016 while wearing green and gold.

The Australian served nine aces in a 54-minute victory - his first of the year - and next faces top seed John Isner.

"But I have to go out there and try and play the way I did today".

Jordan Thompson finished off a good day for the Aussies with a hard-fought 6-7 (7-9, ) 7-5, 6-1 defeat of local wildcard Noah Rubin.

Paolo Lorenzi of Italy opened up main draw action on Monday at the New York Open by scoring the first upset of the tournament, earning a marathon 7-6 (4), 6-7 (4), 6-4 win over No. 8 seed Tennys Sandgren of the United States.
