Fernando Verdasco dumped out of Swedish Open, with top seed Christian Garin also eliminated

ATP Tour

Albert Ramos Vinolas is into the quarter-finals of the Swedish Open after battling past a typically resilient Fernando Verdasco in Bastad.

It was certainly not easy for Ramos Vinolas, who had to face nine break points throughout the contest.

However, he was able to fight off eight of those nine before securing a 6-2, 6-4 win in 106 minutes.

Ramos Vinolas will now face another compatriot in Roberto Carballes Baena, who powered past Damir Dzumhur 6-1, 7-6 (7-4).

Top seed Christian Garin is out though after Frenchman Jeremy Chardy was just too good for him.

Chardy took advantage of a loose service game from Garin midway through the first set, with Garin serving a double fault to hand his grateful opponent a break.

From there, it was relatively simple going for Chardy, who eased to a 6-4, 6-4 win.

Nicolas Jarry is also through after beating Mikeal Ymer 7-5, 6-3.
