Third-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka also advanced to the quarterfinals as he defeated Ivan Navarro 7-6 (7-5), 6-1. Wawrinka limited Navarro to nine points in the second set.

No. 6-seeded Robin Haase claimed a 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 decision over Inigo Cervantes, getting two breaks in each of the second and third sets.

Also Wednesday, qualifier Daniel Munoz-de la Nava ousted eighth-seeded Flavio Cipolla and, in a first-round match, Bobby Reynolds posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over Attila Balazs.
