Willis, ranked 772nd in the world, beat world number 54 Ricardas Berankis on Monday booking his second round clash with the Swiss.

He came close to quitting tennis earlier in the year, but his girlfriend, Jenny, convinced him to give it another go.

Rain saw a number of matches postponed on Tuesday, including that of Brit Heather Watson who was due to take on Annika Beck.
