  • Verdasco and Dolgopolov advance to Umag quarters

    7/12/12 10:27 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Top seed Fernando Verdasco and No. 3 seed Alexandr Dolgopolov booked spots in the Umag quarterfinals with wins on Thursday.

    Fernando Verdasco (1) def. Ernests Gulbis 6-2, 3-6, 6-1

    Spaniard Fernando Verdasco weathered patchy form and a middle-set push from world No. 78 Ernests Gulbis to advance to the quarterfinals at the Vegeta Croatia Open.

    Verdasco was good enough in the first set, but Gulbis didn't offer much resistance, which allowed Verdasco to execute his game plan. Still, Gulbis was successful staving off 12 of 14 break point chances in the set.

    The Spaniard took his own turn at shaky form in the middle set and it was Gulbis' turn to dictate play. The Latvian secured a pair of service breaks to level the match at a set a piece. But Verdasco took back control in the third to seal the win.

    Alexandr Dolgopolov (3) def. Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-4

    No. 3 seed Alexandr Dolgopolov of the Ukraine had an easy path into the quarters. Italy's Fabio Fognini started off slow and never managed to gain momentum in the brief match.

    Dolgopolov didn't face a single break point in the first set, while securing a pair of breaks of his own to take a decisive lead.

    Fognini offered up better form in the second set, but it wasn't enough. Dolgopolov was able to fight off both break points against him and he managed to secure one more break of the Fognini serve to close out the match in straight sets.
