    Basel - Del Potro faces Baker for quarterfinal berth World No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro will be looking to reach the last eight at the Swiss Indoors Basel, as he takes on American Brian Baker late Thursday. The winner moves on to face either Kevin Anderson or Marinko Matosevic for a semifinal spot.

    Second seed Juan Martin Del Potro began the tournament with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Colombia’s Alejandro Falla. The 24-year-old Argentine won 27 of 33 first-service points through an hour and 26 minutes of play.

    Del Potro is seeking his 14th quarterfinal berth of the season.

    World No. 57 Brian Baker survived an extended battle with Czech veteran Radek Stepanek in the opening round. The 27-year-old American lost the first set before rallying to seal the victory in three, 2-6, 7-6(5), 6-3.

    Baker will attempt to reach his first Tour-level quarterfinal since May, when he finished runner-up to Spain’s Nicolas Almagro in Nice.

    Prediction: Del Potro in straight sets.
