Benneteau into quarterfinals at Lyon Grand Prix

Fifth-seeded Julien Benneteau of France beat South African qualifier Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-2 Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of the Lyon Grand Prix.
Benneteau broke Anderson's serve four times.
Also in first-round matches, 2006 champion Paul-Henri Mathieu defeated Leonardo Mayer of Argentina 7-6 (5), 6-2, and Belgium's Olivier Rochus downed French qualifier Vincent Millot 6-3, 6-2.
"I played a solid match. It wasn't a great match because it's never easy to play against someone you don't know," Mathieu said. "You never know what to expect and you start tentatively."
