Delbonis' opponent in the quarterfinal will be seventh-seeded Carlos Berlocq, who overwhelmed fellow Argentine Diego Junqueira 6-1, 6-0.

Second-seeded Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina beat countryman Horacio Zeballos 6-4, 7-6 (2), setting up a quarterfinal against Brazilian Joao Souza, who upset Chile's Fernando Gonzalez 6-3, 7-6 (6).
