The first set was scrappy, indicative of the lack of form of the pair of them, and it eventually went toa tie-break which Londero won, courtesy of the fact that he dropped his serve less often.
The match though was stood on its head in the second as Gombos took control breaking three times to level the match.
One further break of serve in the third was enough for him to end his losing streak, which had seen him come into this tournament on the back of four successive defeats.
