Feliciano Lopez Stuttgart Open Jeremy Chardy Tomas Berdych Bernard Tomic

Spain's Feliciano Lopez reached the quarter-finals of the Stuttgart Open tennis on Thursday and is set to play Czech Tomas Berdych.

Benneteau failed to work a single break point against the promising star, who produced an utterly dominant display to set up a clash with Gilles Muller, a 6-3 3-6 6-4 victor against Aljaz Bedene. Spaniard earned the first break point of the match with a return victor and Mischa double faulted to end the match in the worst possible manner.

Lopez has split two meetings with the 16th-ranked Pouille, who is aiming for his third career title.

"I played great. I think it was a very tough match", said Pouille.

Pouille edged past fellow Frenchman Benoit Paire in a finely-balanced encounter where one single break in the entire match was enough for a 7-6 (5) 7-5 victory.

Muller broke Zverev twice early in the second set and sealed victory on his first match point with an ace to book a place in the final against third seed Ivo Karlovic.

"Weird match, hard match emotionally and mentally because Tommy's previous year on tour maybe, and playing him on grass is not easy", Zverev said.
