Geneva - Top seed Stan Wawrinka and US Open champion Marin Cilic, the second seed, were both knocked out of the Geneva clay-court tournament on Thursday in the quarter-finals.

Wawrinka, who was looking to capture a first title on home ground, went down 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-4 to Argentina's Federico Delbonis.

Delbonis will next face Portuguese sixth seed Joao Sousa who saved four match points in the third set tie-break to prevail 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (8/6) over third seed Pablo Andujar.

Santiago Giraldo of Colombia booked a spot in his second semi-final of the year when he recorded his first victory over Cilic in their fifth meeting.
