Two other seeds in action both lost, leaving Tipsarevic and No. 5 Feliciano Lopez as the only seeded players in Friday's quarterfinals. 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 (3), 3-6, 6-2.
