Mardy Fish registered a straight-sets win over Nicolas Mahut at the Atlanta Tennis Championships.

The world number nine strolled through to the quarter-finals as he won 6-3 6-3 in just under an hour-and-a-half. Fish will now face eighth seed Somdev Devvarman in the next round after the Indian brushed aside Tatsuma Ito 6-1 6-3. Lleyton Hewitt crashed out, though, as the former US Open champion lost 7-5 2-6 6-2 to American qualifier Rajeev Ram. Veteran Hewitt, who won at Flushing Meadows 10 years ago, had hoped to halt his slide down the world rankings after showing signs of his best at Wimbledon. But the Australian laboured against the world number 272 and exited in just under two hours.

Ram’s reward was a quarter-final meeting with compatriot Ryan Harrison after the 19-year-old upset fourth seed Xavier Malisse 6-7 (7-3) 6-4 6-4.
