OSTRAVA, Czech Republic (AP) — Third-seeded Belinda Bencic cruised past Sara Sorribes Tormo of Spain 6-2, 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals of the Ostrava Open on Thursday.
The Swiss will next Estonia's Anett Kontaveit.
Czech wild-card entry Tereza Martincova upset fifth-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia 7-6 (5), 7-6 (6) to also make the quarterfinals at the indoor hardcourt tournament.
Pavlyuchenkova, who reached the final at the French Open this year, was 5-1 down in the second set but saved two match points before fighting back to force another tiebreaker.
The Czech wasted another match point at 6-5 but clinched her third victory over a top-20 player when Pavlyuchenkova's forehand sailed long.
