Gael Monfils into quarterfinals
Monfils, who had a first-round bye, broke Berankis four times in their first meeting to reach the quarterfinals after rain delayed the start of play for more than three hours.
Second-seeded Mikhail Youzhny fell in his opening match in Bucharest for a second straight year, and lost to Dutchman Robin Haase for the first time in six matches, 6-3, 6-3. Haase faces Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan on Friday.
