    Rain wreaked havoc with the bet-at-home Cup on Wednesday, but not before a second-round upset was allowed to take place. Bolelli broke serve three times and won 59 percent of his second-serve return points to take out the second-seeded Mayer in one hour and 39 minutes.

    A dominant first set saw Bolelli cruise through all four of his service games while losing a mere four points in those games. Mayer made things competitive in the second, as the players exchanged one break of serve each. But the 111th-ranked Italian eased through the tiebreaker seven points to four, setting up a quarterfinal clash against Martin Klizan.

    Gulbis' woes continued as he crashed out of Kitzbuhel to Dutra Silva in one hour and 19 minutes on Thursday. The Latvian had a chance to start well, but he squandered a 0-40 advantage at 1-0 and he missed another break-point opportunity at 3-2. Dutra Silva eventually broke for a 4-3 lead of his own and he served out the opener the rest of the way.

    With momentum in hand, the 107th-ranked Brazilian earned another scalp of the Gulbis serve right away in set two. After exchanging breaks midway through the set, Dutra Silva finished off the proceedings at 5-4. This gives Dutra Silva six ATP wins for his career while Gulbis, who won Los Angeles at this time last year, is expected to exit the Top 100.
