Kuznetsova holds on

Top-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova withstood the challenge from Belgium's Yanina Wickmayer to advance to the quarterfinals, winning the match in a third-set tiebreaker. Wickmayer was serving for the match at 6-5 in the third set but could not close the deal.

Kuznetsova is the first women's quarterfinalist. On the men's side, No. 7 Igor Andreev, No. 11 Jurgen Melzer and unseeded Leonardo Mayer are in the quarterfinals.
