There were few surprises on day one of the China Open as all seeds in action secured their places in the second round.

David Ferrer - runner-up at this ATP 500 event to Novak Djokovic six years ago - was one of the seeds in action, along with Lucas Pouille and Roberto Bautista Agut.

World number 13 Ferrer eased past Pablo Cuevas 6-4 7-6 (7-3) to set up a meeting with either Viktor Troicki or Fabio Fognini.

Pouille's victory was even more emphatic, the Frenchmen needing just 51 minutes to thrash Lu Yen-hsun 6-1 6-2.

Ferrer's compatriot Bautista Agut had more trouble in getting past John Millman, taken the distance by the Australian before prevailing 6-4 3-6 6-3.

He will now meet qualifier Kyle Edmund, who defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3 6-2 in Monday's other match.
