Austrian wild card Oliver Marach upset Tomas Zib of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, delighting home fans on a rain-shortened opening day Monday at the Generali Open. Zib reached his third semifinals of the year last weekend in Stuttgart, where he lost to eventual champion Rafael Nadal. The 162nd-ranked Marach received a wild card only after there were no late entries from top-20 players.
