ALEX Bogdanovic knocked out the second seed Mischa Zverez in straight sets to reach the last 16 of the Surbiton Trophy on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old Globe player recorded an impressive 6-2, 6-3 victory over the world No.81 in a match played at the National Tennis Centre after heavy rain had forced the switch from grass to outdoor hard courts.
"That was a good start," said Bogdanovic, the British No.3. "The courts favoured me as they are a bit slow."
Boggo will now meet the experienced Israeli, Harel Levy.
