    Third seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga made quick work of second-round opponent Jan Hajek Wednesday afternoon, cruising to a 6-3, 6-2 victory in 65 minutes. The 25-year-old Frenchman passed through the contest unbroken, having secured three of 6 break point chances. Tsonga turned in a solid serving day, winning 33 of 40 first-service points. With the victory, the World No. 10 improved his 2010 season record to 16-7.

    Tsonga moves on to face 15th seed Nicolas Almagro for a spot in the quarterfinal. The Spaniard defeated Simon Greul in the second round on Tuesday, 6-1, 6-3.

The Argentine held ten of 11 service games, en route to a 7-6(3), 6-4 victory in an hour and 44 minutes. Schwank, now 8-8 for the year, successfully rebounded after a first-round loss last week in Monte-Carlo.

    Schwank is scheduled to meet lucky-loser Ivan Navarro in the next round. The Spaniard downed qualifier Pablo Cuevas in his opening round match, 6-2, 6-4.
