Stefanos Tsitsipas frustrated

Second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas produced an ill-disciplined display as he crashed out of the Moselle Open

The Greek was given two code violations and a point penalty as Ricardas Berankis came from a set down to beat him 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 in two hours and 36 minutes.

Tsitsipas had a match point in the second-set tie-breaker as he was 6-5 up, but the Lithuanian won the next three games to take the set and then eased to victory in the decider.

Berankis will face Radu Albot for a place in the semi-finals after the Moldovan beat Marton Fucsovics 6-3, 6-2.

Frenchman Gilles Simon caused an upset as he came from a set down to beat seventh seed Filip Krajinovic 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 and earn a quarter-final clash against compatriot Richard Gasquet.

Yannick Maden, meanwhile, upset Frenchman Benoit Paire with the German securing a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 win while fifth seed Nikoloz Basilashvili beat Ugo Humbert 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 to set up a quarter-final encounter against top seed Kei Nishikori.
