Fourth seed Richard Gasquet booked his place in the quarter-finals of the Sud de France Open in Montpellier with a 6-3 6-4 win over Russian wild card Nikolay Davydenko. Gasquet needed one hour and 26 minutes to complete his win and reach the last eight where he will meet Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber, who beat Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-4 7-5. There was further French success with second seed Gilles Simon overcoming Italy’s Flavio Cipolla 6-3 6-2, while wild card Guillaume Rufin was a surprise 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 winner over fifth seed Feliciano Lopez.

Top seed and home favourite Ivan Ljubicic crashed out of the Zagreb Indoors in Croatia after falling 6-4 6-4 in his second round match against Germany’s world number 105 Michael Berrer. Austrian qualifier Jurgen Melzer will play Berrer in the quarter-finals after defeating Italian fifth seed Andreas Seppi 6-2 6-3. Melzer, who needed just over an hour to progress, saved all but one of six break points against him.

Seventh seed Robin Haase beat Matthias Bachinger 7-6 (7/4) 3-6 6-3 while in first round action there were wins for Dudi Sela, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Grega Zemlja and fourth seed Ivan Dodig.
