Dubai - Tomas Berdych advanced to his fourth quarterfinal of the season by beating Italian qualifier Thomas Fabbiano 6-2, 6-2 at the Dubai Championships on Wednesday.

Berdych, a two-time Dubai finalist, holds a 22-4 win-loss record at the tournament. He's reached at least the semi-finals in four of the last five years.
