CALI, Colombia, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Second-seeded Lara Arruabarrena-Veci advanced to the quarterfinals but No. 3 seed Alexandra Cadantu was bounced Wednesday at the Copa Bionaire.

Spain's Arruabarrena-Veci prevailed over Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania 7-5, 4-6, 6 -3 to reach the round of eight, where she will meet Teliana Pereira of Brazil, who rallied to best Canadian Sharon Fichman 0-6, 6 3, 6-2 Wednesday.

The news wasn't as good for Romania's Cadantu, however, who fell to No. 12 seed Sesil Karatantcheva 6-4, 5-7, 6-2.

The Bulgarian now goes on to face Catalina Castano of Colombia, who dispatched seventh-seeded Nina Bratchikova of Russia 7-6 (8-6), 6-2.

First-round winners Wednesday included sixth-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina and Argentine Paula Ormaechea.
