Gstaad - Top-seed Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia was made to work for victory against Austrian qualifier Martin Fischer at the Swiss Open before sealing a 4-6, 7-6 (7/1), 6-3 second-round win on Thursday.

Tipsarevic is seeking back-to-back clay-court titles after winning the tournament in Stuttgart, Germany, last week.

Two other seeds in action both lost, leaving Tipsarevic and No 5 Feliciano Lopez as the only seeded players in Friday's quarter-finals.

Defending champion Marcel Granollers, the No 2 seed from Spain, lost 6-4, 6-2 against Lukasz Kubot of Poland.

Czech qualifier Jan Hernych, who played through three rounds to reach the main draw, beat seventh-seeded Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria beat Dustin Brown of Germany 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 6-2.
