Michael Berrer of Germany toppled top-seeded Ivan Ljubicic 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of Zagreb Indoors.
“I played badly, It hurts much more losing at home, but the good thing with tennis is that you don’t have to wait long for another chance.”
Jurgen Melzer of Austria upset fifth-seeded Andreas Seppi 6-2, 6-3 for a place in the quarterfinals.
“I am very happy with the way I played so far,” Melzer said. “I needed some matches after an early exit in Melbourne, where I lost in the first round. … And after many injury problems I had last year now I finally play pain free.”
