(AP) Second-seeded Tommy Haas reached his 12th quarterfinal of the season by defeating Miloslav Mecir 7-5, 7-6 (8) at the Erste Bank Open on Thursday.

Playing in his first ATP event, Mecir missed three set points in the opening set and two in the second. The 12th-ranked Haas, who won the event in 2001, next plays fifth-seeded Radek Stepanek.

Also, Robin Haase missed a second-set match point against seventh-seeded Vasek Pospisil before closing out a 7-6 (3), 6-7 (5), 6-2 win.

Haase lined up third-seeded Fabio Fognini, who defeated Lukasz Kubot 7-5, 6-2. Fognini failed to serve out the opening set at 5-4 but won eight of the next 10 games to reach his 10th quarterfinal of the year.
