    (1) Nicolas Almagro def. Gael Monfils 2-6, 6-0, 6-3

    Top seed Nicolas Almagro advanced to the quarterfinal after rallying to oust former World No. 7 Gael Monfils. The 27-year-old Spaniard converted four of 7 break points through an hour and 26 minutes of play. Monfils struggled on serve, committing 6 double faults and winning just nine of 21 points.

    Almagro is through to take on Italy's Paolo Lorenzi in the next round.

    Ricardas Berankis def. (2) Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-3

    Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis reached the final eight with a straight-sets dismissal of former Houston champion Tommy Haas. The 22-year-old converted four of 6 break points en route to a 6-3, 6-3 victory in 85 minutes.

    "I think I had the advantage because for me it was the second match," Berankis commented. "For the first clay-court matches it’s a big advantage. I used it well to get my rhythm."

    "It started off pretty weird and it didn’t really give me that much confidence for the rest of the match," Haas explained. "I felt if I could’ve held serve in the first game then things would’ve been a little different."

    Berankis is slated to face 5th seed John Isner for a place in the semifinals.
