Valencia - David Ferrer cruised to an easy 6-4, 6-2 victory over fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos to reach the quarter-finals of the Valencia Open on Thursday.

Ferrer, seeded No 1 at the indoor tournament, used an effective serve plus four breaks of his 47th-ranked opponent in a much easier match after a laboured first-round victory. The fifth-ranked Spaniard faces either Sam Querrey or Nicolas Almagro next.

Marcel Granollers continued his dominance of Gilles Simon with a 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-2 victory that was the reigning champion's fourth victory in five career meetings.

Granollers next plays Alexandr Dolgopolov in the last eight after the Ukrainian beat Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 6-4, 6-4.

Also, Jurgen Melzer beat Xavier Malisse 7-5, 6-2.
