Playing in his home nation and on a protected ranking, 37-year-old Stan Wawrinka knocked out No. 2 seed Casper Ruud of Norway 6-4, 6-4 in the first round of the Swiss Indoors Basel on Tuesday in Switzerland.

The three-time Grand Slam winner is still coming back from a foot injury that required multiple surgeries. He saved all three break points he faced against Ruud, went 2-for-2 in break points converted and held a 9-5 edge in aces.

Spanish fifth seed Pablo Carreno Busta defeated Argentina’s Sebastian Baez 6-2, 6-1, and sixth seed and fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut took down Serbian qualifier Laslo Djere 6-4, 6-1.

Andy Murray of Great Britain got past Russian qualifier Roman Safiullin 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-4. Other winners included Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia, Alex Molcan of Slovakia, Botic van de Zandschulp of the Netherlands and Swiss wild card Dominic Stricker.
