The world number 10 needed 84 minutes to see off his Slovenian opponent, bagging the key points whenever they came up.

Awaiting him in the quarter-finals is Daniel Brands, after the home hope stunned Gael Monfils 6-3 3-6 6-0.

In Estoril, Stanislas Wawrinka needed three sets to overcome the doughty Albert Ramos 1-6 6-3 6-4 and reach the quarter-finals. The second seed recovered from a one-sided first set to win through in an hour and 45 minutes.
