Verdasco through to quarters
Second-seeded Spaniard Fernando Verdasco beat wild-card entry Jesse Huta Galung 7-5, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of s-Hertogenbosch Open in Netherlands, a grass-court tune-up ahead of Wimbledon.
The 23rd-ranked Spaniard, the top player in the draw, will face Juergen Melzer of Austria next after the eighth seed recovered from a set down to beat Slovak qualifier Lukas Lacko 5-7, 6-3, 6-3.
Also through to the last eight was third seed Roberto Bautista Agut, who was a 7-5, 7-6 (7/1) winner over Australian Matthew Ebden.
Defending champion Nicolas Mahut of France remained in the running to retain his title after defeating American Steve Johnson 6-2, 7-6 (7/4).
However, fifth seed Dmitry Tursunov withdrew from his tie against home hopeful Thiemo de Bakker with a foot injury.
