Third seed Lucas Sithole - Vink's winning doubles partner in Nottingham - had to work hard to beat Japan's Mitsuteru Moroishi, the South African eventually winning through 6-0, 3-6, 7-6.
Canada's Robert Shaw, ranked fourth, had a much easier time as he beat German qualifier Maximillian Laudan 6-2, 6-1.
In the men's singles, the two seeds in action today could not have made lighter work of their first round matches.
