Filip Horansky caused the upset of the day at the Rhein Asset Open presented by B&B Hotels by knocking out No. 2 seed Damir Dzumhur from Bosnia and Herzegovina 7-6(4), 2-6, 6-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

The World No. 248 from Slovakia sent down three aces and won 74 per cent of his first-service points to advance after two hours and 10 minutes.

The 23-year-old Slovakian battled past Croatian qualifier Duje Ajdukovic 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. The encounter lasted one hour and 56 minutes.
