    This match was the third meeting between Croat Marin Cilic and the Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky and the third time Stakhovsky has managed to take a set from the much higher ranked Cilic.

    Cilic got off to a bit of a slow start, striking just three aces in the first set, which he dropped on a single service break by Stakhovsky, But the Croat righted the ship in the second, turning the tables with a pair of unanswered service breaks of his own.

    The No. 3 seed punctuated his victory with nine aces in the third set. He will take on No. 5 seed Benoit Paire in the quarters.
