Juan Carlos Ferrero marched into the quarter-finals of the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart after coming from behind to knock out third seeded Russian Mikhail Youzhny. The 31-year-old Ferrero battled back after losing a first set tie-break to win 6-7 (6-8) 6-2 6-2 and earn a last eight meeting with Spain’s Marcel Granollers, who beat Frenchman Benoit Paire 6-4 7-5.

Local wild card Cedrik-Marcel Stebe reached his first tour quarter-final after a 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 win over Italy’s Fabio Fognini, ranked more than 150 places higher in the world rankings. Stebe will now play Spain’s Pablo Andujar. Qualifiers Pavol Cervenak and Federico Del Bonis will meet in the quarter-finals after pulling off surprise second round wins. Cervenak beat Romanian Victor Hanescu, who had dispatched top seed Gael Monfils in the first round, 6-3 7-6 (8-6), while Argentina’s Del Bonis was a 6-4 6-3 winner over Ukraine’s Sergiy Stakhovsky. Poland’s Lukasz Kubot continued his fine recent form with a 4-6 6-4 6-3 win over Spain’s Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. Next for Kubot is Colombia’s Santiago Giraldo, a 1-6 7-5 6-4 winner over France’s Jeremy Chardy.
