Haas beats top-seeded Tsonga at BMW Open

German veteran Tommy Haas beat top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 6-1, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of the BMW Open.
Tsonga was making his debut in the clay-court event and had a bye into the second round. But he has never won a title on clay and was outclassed by the 134th-ranked German, who once was No. 2 in the world. Tsonga is No. 5 but never had a break point against Haas.
Third-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia cruised past Germany's Matthias Bachinger 6-3, 6-2 to reach the last eight.
Eighth-seeded Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus rallied to beat German qualifier Dustin Brown 1-6, 6-4, 6-1.
