Del Potro cruises into Estoril Open quarterfinals

Former U.S. Open champion Juan del Potro cruised into the quarterfinals of the Estoril Open with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Rui Machado of Portugal on Thursday.
The top-seeded Argentine, who won at Flushing Meadow in 2009, looked to be only troubled in the third game of the first set when he saved two break points.
Del Potro collected his first title of the season in February when he won the Open 13 in Marseille, France.
He will meet 2009 and 2010 champion Albert Montanes of Spain, who came from behind to overcome Bobby Reynolds of the United States 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.
Joao Sousa of Portugal also went through after fifth-seeded Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan withdrew when trailing 3-6, 6-3, 4-2.
Fourth-seeded Albert Ramos of Spain topped Germany's Bjorn Phau 7-5, 6-0.
In the women's event, top-seeded Roberta Vinci of Italy reached the semifinals by beating Nadia Petrova of Russia 6-2, 1-6, 6-4. The Italian rallied from 3-0 down in the final set against the former third-ranked player.
Vinci will take on Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who defeated Petra Cetkovska of the Czech Republic 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
Carla Suarez Navarro beat Silvia Soler-Espinosa 6-3, 6-3 in an all-Spanish match, and Italy's Karin Knapp defeated Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-4.
