Adrian Mannarino safely through in Newport, but Mischa Zverev out

The top-seeded Mannarino, who is still looking for his maiden ATP Tour title, secured a solid 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) victory over Jordan Thompson from Australia.
“I think the last four or five years I’ve had good results on grass. So it’s just [a surface] that I feel comfortable on. It’s always good to come here with some confidence,” Mannarino said.
The Frenchman will face Marcel Granollers in the quarter-final after the Spaniard stunned sixth seed Gilles Muller 7-5, 7-6 (7-4).
Canadian Vasek Pospisil produced the upset of the day as he came from a set down to defeat second seed Mischa Zverev 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Next up for Pospisil is Indian Ramkumar Ramanathan, who defeated eighth seed Denis Kudla 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Third seed Steve Johnson claimed a commanding 6-3, 6-1 victory over fellow American Christian Harrison and he will face Dudi Sela, who beat 2016 Newport champion Ivo Karlovic 7-6 (8-6), 6-7 (4-7), 6-2.
