Andreas Seppi: Through to the quarter-finals of the Croatia Open
Andreas Seppi coasted into the quarter-finals of the Croatia Open in Umag after second-round opponent Andreas Haider-Mauer retired hurt.
The Italian was in command of the match at 6-1 4-0 when the Austrian pulled out with a back problem, which had earlier required a medical timeout.
Elsewhere, Fourth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine made a surprise exit as he went down 6-3 6-1 to Slovenia's Aljaz Bedene.
The number eight seed seeded Carlos Berlocq also bowed out after a 3-6 6-3 6-2 loss at the hands of fellow Argentinan Horacio Zeballos.
There were no dramas for fifth-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo, who dismissed Serbia's Viktor Troicki 6-0 6-4.
