S'HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands, June 20 (UPI) -- Second-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka was one of four straight-set winners in Thursday's quarterfinal play at the Topshelf Open tennis tournament in the Netherlands.

Wawrinka took out Jeremy Chardy 6-4, 7-6 (7-2), winning three-quarters of the points on serve. He was especially effective in the first set, dropping just six points when serving.

Each player had a second-set break but Wawrinka, the only seed still in the tournament, came out ahead in the tiebreaker and improved to 4-0 lifetime versus Chardy.

He'll go against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the first of Friday's semifinals. Garcia-Lopez defeated qualifier Jay Hernych 6-4, 6-1 behind five breaks.

Wawrinka had a 6-1, 6-2 win over Garcia-Lopez this year that gave him a 3-2 advantage in career meetings.

Also Thursday, Xavier Malisse edged Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 6-4 while facing only one break point and Nicolas Mahut, a qualifier, advanced over Evgeny Donskoy 6-4, 7-6 (7-1).

Mahut took a tight three-set match from Malisse in 2006, in their only previous meeting.
