Rotterdam: Marcos Baghdatis beat Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (3), 6-3 on Thursday to advance to a quarterfinal showdown with seventh-seeded Ivan Ljubicic.

Baghdatis had a tougher time overcoming the 44th-ranked Lopez than he did dispatching Australian Open finalist Andy Murray 6-4, 6-1 the previous evening as the Scot battled a left wrist injury.

Ljubicic downed French qualifier Benoit Paire 6-0, 6-4.
