The Irish lucky loser had upset Igor Sijsling in the first round but the Spaniard had too much for him in the last-16 and the world number 236 went down 6-3 1-6 6-1.

Next up for Bautista Agut is Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, who was a 7-6 (15/13) 7-5 winner over Yann Marti.

Home favourite Philipp Kohlschreiber made a second round exit as two matches in one day proved too much for the German.

The fifth seed overcame Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4 6-3 in his first round match but when he returned to court later in the day he came up short, losing 7-5 7-6 (7/5) to Lukas Rosol.

Rosol will face Feliciano Lopez in the quarter finals after the Spaniard overcame countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-7 (3/7) 6-2 6-3.

Defending champion Fabio Fognini eased through with a 6-4 6-4 win over Andrey Golubev and will take on Santiago Giraldo, who was a 6-1 6-7 (5/7) 6-3 winner over Philipp Davydenko.

In the other quarter-final, Mikhail Youzhny, a 6-1 6-1 winner over Leonardo Mayer will face Federico Delbonis, who beat Benjamin Becker 6-7 (6/8) 6-4 6-4.
