Valencia - Top-seeded David Ferrer beat Canadian qualifier Vasek Pospisil 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach the Valencia Open quarter-finals.

The fifth-ranked Spanish player, defending his title, was hardly troubled for the second straight day as he saved five of six break chances and converted four himself, including the lone break of the second set to advance at the City of Arts and Sciences.

It was a tough day for Canadian players as Milos Raonic bowed out after a 6-4, 6-4 first round loss to Croatia's Marian Cilic. Break points were hard to come by as Cilic saved his serve twice and broke Raonic a pair of times to win it.

Later on Wednesday, Juan Martin del Potro continues his push to reach the World Tour Finals in London when he plays Dmitry Tursunov.

Results on Wednesday from the Valencia Open (seedings in parentheses):

First Round

Marin Cilic, Croatia, def. Milos Raonic, Canada, 6-4, 6-4.
