David Ferrer cruised to a 6-4, 6-2 victory over fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos on Thursday to reach the quarterfinals of the Valencia Open.

Ferrer, seeded No. 1 at the indoor tournament, served well and broke his 47th-ranked opponent four times in a much easier match after a labored first-round victory. The fifth-ranked Spaniard next faces Nicolas Almagro, who defeated American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-0.

Marcel Granollers extended his dominance of Gilles Simon with a 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-2 victory that was the reigning champion's fourth victory in five career meetings.

Granollers plays Alexandr Dolgopolov in the quarters after the Ukrainian beat Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 6-4, 6-4. Jurgen beat Xavier Malisse 7-5, 6-2.
