Bernard Tomic has set up a tantalising second round meeting with world No.1 Novak Djokovic at the Rome Masters.

The Australian teenager dropped the first set but rallied past Colombian qualifier Santiago Giraldo 4-6 6-2 6-4 to book a date with Djokovic on Tuesday night.

Tomic bounced back from his first round exit in Madrid to beat Giraldo in the last major clay court event before his French Open assault begins in two weeks time.
