    Cilic survived a difficult round of 16, where he held on to oust Fabio Fognini in three sets. The 23-year-old remains on track to secure his third semifinal berth of the season.

    Anderson defeated veteran Albert Montanes in two tie-break sets to reach the quarterfinal. The South African has struck 21 aces through two matches. He will attempt to make his third semifinal in 2011.
