American Wayne Odesnik, playing for the first time since pleading guilty to importing human growth hormone into Australia, beat 19-year-old Jerzy Janowicz of Poland 6-3, 6-4 in a first-round match of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships on Monday.
Odesnik declined comment on his case. He said he would release a statement on Tuesday.
Odesnik, a finalist in the tournament last year, was in charge early until late in the second set when Janowicz broke the American's serve in the eighth game.
Janowicz, playing in his third ATP event, fought off two match points before his backhand sailed long in the 10th game to end the match.
