Rotterdam - Second-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia reached the World Tennis Tournament quarterfinals on Wednesday with a 7-6 (2), 7-6 (7) second-round win against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg.

Neither player faced a break-point in the first set, but Muller saved five in the second.

Cilic had two match points at 6-4 in the tiebreak, but then saved a set point at 7-6 down as Muller fought back strongly.

The 2014 US Open champion next plays Philipp Kohlschreiber, who won 6-4, 6-2 against qualifier Ivan Dodig of Croatia.

The German proved clinical on Dodig's serve, converting four of five break-point chances, and solid on his own — winning 75 percent of points on second serve.
