Munich - Top-seeded David Goffin of Belgium advanced to the
quarter-finals of the BMW Open Thursday by beating Victor Estrella Burgos of
the Dominican Republic 5-7, 6-3, 6-2.
Goffin, who had a bye into the second round, next plays
eighth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany, who beat Lukas Rosol of the Czech
Republic 6-3, 6-4.
Zverev's huge serve proved decisive even on the slower clay
surface. He had five aces and won 31 of 32 of his first-serve points, while
never facing a break point against Rosol, who double-faulted four times.
Fifth-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy progressed after beating
Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3, 7-5 and next faces Jozef Kovalik of Slovakia.
Kovalik, a lucky loser entry who took the place of the injured
Gael Monfils, beat qualifier Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-4.
