HAMBURG, Germany -- Lukas Rosol upset 2006 champion Tommy Robredo of Spain 7-5, 7-6 (6) to reach the Hamburg Open quarterfinals on Thursday.

The 42nd-ranked Czech saved seven break points while converting his one chance, and took nearly two hours to put away the No. 3 seed.

Rosol, who lost in the final in Stuttgart against Roberto Bautista Agut on Sunday, will next play Philipp Kohlschreiber, the seventh-seeded German who defeated 2011 champion Gilles Simon of France, 7-5, 6-3.

Top seed David Ferrer of Spain beat Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 for a quarterfinal with compatriot Pablo Andujar, who eased past Dustin Brown of Germany 6-1, 6-2.

German wild card Tobias Kamke knocked out the fourth-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov 7-5, 2-6, 7-5 in just over two hours.

The 83rd-ranked Kamke next faces 17-year-old Alexander Zverev, another Hamburg native, who defeated Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 6-4, 7-6 (6) to keep his breakthrough run going.

The 285th-ranked Zverev defeated No. 5 seed Mikhail Youzhny of Russia on Wednesday.

Also winners were Argentina's Leonardo Mayer, Spain's Pablo Andujar, and Dusan Lajovic, who was leading 3-1 when fellow Serb Filip Krajinovic retired due to illness.
