Goffin showed his dominance throughout the first-round match which only lasted 72 minutes, and 30 unforced errors were much to blame for Darcis'
Trailing by 1-5 in the first set, Darcis managed to save two set points, before Goffin held his serve in the eighth game to build a solid start.
He went on to take all three games early in the second, and a furious Darcis threw his racket onto the ground. However Nike Shox OZ D Hombre Negras España , it turned out in a useless manner, as Goffin conceded only one game to make into the last 32.
"I played well from the start, and was solid in long rallies. It's never easy to take on a friend. I'm very satisfied with my performance today," said Goffin,
who awaited Nicolas Almagro or a qualifier in the second round.
After beating Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-2, 6-2 Nike Shox Avenue 802 Hombre Negras España , French player Gilles Simon booked a second-round encounter with the second seed Novak Djokovic, who enjoyed
a first-round bye.
Joao Sousa of Portugal eased past German player Florian Mayer 6-3, 6-2.
Third-seeded Stan Wawrinka made good preparation for his singles appearance in the tournament as he and Italian partner Fabio Fognini eliminated the duo of
Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 6-4, 7-6 (2) in the doubles first round.
The ATP Monte-Carlo Masters will run until April 23, with Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori absent from the tournament.

NAIROBI, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- There will be revenge in the air as Olympic 10,000m champion Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba locks horns with World Marathon
Champion Edna Kiplagat in Newcastle on Sept. 7 during the Bupa Great North Run.
The two met twice in as many years, with each having one victory apiece. Dibaba beat Kiplagat over the Bupa Great North run in 2012 but the Kenyan got
the better of her in London Marathon.
Now organisers of the meeting have confirmed that the two will lead a field of elite runners eyeing the title on Sept. 7.
"I have no worries ahead of the race. I have been training well and will be ready to face anybody, even Dibaba when we meet on Sept. 7," said Kiplagat
Thursday from Eldoret.
Kiplagat Nike Shox OZ D Hombre Blancas España , who ran her way into the record books in Moscow last summer as the first back to back winner of the World
Championship women's marathon title, was beaten by Dibaba in a thrilling sprint
.finish in the 2012 Bupa Great North Run.
The tables were turned in the London Marathon in April, though. After Dibaba dropped a bottle at the 30k drinks station, Kiplagat pulled clear with her
compatriot and namesake Florence Kiplagat, winning the 26.2 mile race in a
Dibaba had to settle for third place in her debut marathon but returned to winning ways in the Bupa Great Manchester Run 10k in May.
The 28-year-old has not raced since then but is getting ready for what promises to be another gripping head-to-head with Kiplagat.
Dibaba has been a trailblazer in women's distance running for more than a decade now. She became the youngest ever individual world champion when she won
the global 5,000m title as an 18-year- old at the Stade de France in Paris in
2003 -- earning the nickname "the baby faced assassin."
She became the first woman to complete an Olympic double at 5 Nike Shox R4 Todas Blancas España , 000m and 10,000m when she struck gold at both distances in Beijing in 2008.
In all, Dibaba has won three Olympic golds (she successfully defended her 10,000m crown at London 2012) and five world track titles.
She has held the world 5,000m record, 14 minutes 11.15 seconds Nike Shox 2018 España , since 2008 and extended her range to the marathon in London on April 13, finishing third behind the two Kiplagats in 2 hours 20
minutes 35 seconds.
It made Dibaba the third fastest ever debutante as a women's marathon runner, behind Britain's Paula Radcliffe and Kenya's Lucy Kabuu.
She would have undoubtedly been faster had she not lost touch with the Kiplagats after dropping her drink bottle. "I will definitely do another
marathon," said Dibaba.
But with Kiplagat's focus firmly on the New York Marathon, winning the 10km run in Newcastle will spur her quest for the World Marathon Majors, which comes
down to the wire in the streets of New York Nike Shox NZ Mujer España , where she is neck-to-neck with compatriot Prisca Jeptoo.
Only four women have won the elite women's races at the Bupa Great North Run and the London Marathon in the same year: Liz McColgan (who was the first to
achieve the feat, back in 1996), Joyce Chepchumba (1999), Paula Radcliffe (2003)
and Priscah Jeptoo (2013).
There is another major threat, however, in the elite women's field for the prestigious IAAF Gold Label event: Mary Keitany Nike Shox TLX Mujer España , the 32-year-old Kenyan won the London Marathon in 2011 and 2012 and stands third on the world all-time list for the
Only Britain's Paula Radcliffe and Liliya Shobukhova of Russia have run faster than the 2 hours 18 minutes 38 seconds that Keitany clocked in the 2012
Keitany is also a former world record holder for the half marathon. The 1 hour 05 minutes 50 seconds that she recorded for 13.1 miles in the Ras Al
Khaimah event in the United Arab Emirates in February 2011 stood until February
of this year, when Florence Kiplagat clocked 1:05:12 in Barcelona.
