SHENZHEN, China (AP) — Third-seeded Richard Gasquet of France saved all six break points he faced in defeating Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the Shenzhen Open quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Gasquet, who lost his previous two meetings with the left-handed Muller, set up a quarterfinal clash with Juan Monaco of Argentina, who beat seventh-seeded Vasek Pospisil 7-5, 2-6, 6-3, despite 11 aces by the Canadian.

Eighth-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy also won, 6-4, 6-3 over compatriot Simone Bolelli, who won their only previous match six years ago.

Seppi will next face fourth-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain who rallied for a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 win over Sam Groth of Australia.
