Australian next plays Molcan or Wolf
The Australian suffered a disappointing first-round exit in Tokyo earlier this month but bounced back in style against Bonzi, striking 19 winners to advance after 77 minutes at the ATP 250 event.
De Minaur now leads the 26-year-old 2-0 in their ATP Head2Head series. The fifth seed, who is making his second appearance in Stockholm, will next play American J.J. Wolf or Slovakian Alex Molcan. The World No. 23 is seeking his second tour-level title of the season this week after triumphing in Atlanta.
In other action, Swiss qualifier Antoine Bellier defeated qualifier Alexander Shevchenko 6-4, 6-2 in 82 minutes. The 26-year-old Bellier, who won an ATP Challenger Tour title earlier this season, will next face fourth seed Denis Shapovalov.
