Top seed David Ferrer will take on fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the quarter-finals of the Stockholm Open after the pair struggled to victory on Thursday.

The unseeded Verdasco, meanwhile, saw off the challenge of three-time former finalist Jarkko Nieminen, securing a 6-2 3-6 6-3 victory.

Fifth seed Ernests Gulbis reached his fourth ATP World Tour quarter-final of the season by beating Igor Sijsling 6-3 7-6, while Kenny De Schepper upset fourth seed Kevin Anderson 7-6 4-6 6-3.

Grigor Dimitrov saw off Jan-Lennard Struff 6-1 6-3 while second seed Milos Raonic was the last man out on court and booked his place in the next round with a 6-2 7-6 victory over Joachim Johansson.
