Andreev, Volandri reach Copa Telmex quarterfinals

Argentina's Agustin Calleri beat Louis Horna of Peru 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Copa Telmex Tournament.
"I didn't start off very well but I tried to hit the ball harder and managed to reclaim momentum," Calleri said after a performance that nonetheless included 10 aces and some well-placed drop shots. "I never lost hope."
Calleri will face eighth-seeded Filippo Volandri of Italy, who beat Argentina's Sergio Roitman 7-5, 7-5 earlier to reach the quarters.
Also, sixth-seeded Russian Igor Andreev beat Jiri Vanek of the Czech Republic 6-1, 0-6, 6-4.
"It was a tough match, but things went my way," Andreev said.
In the quarterfinals, Andreev will face Argentina's Jose Acasuso, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Spain's Daniel Gimeno Traver in the clay-court tournament.
Fourth-seeded Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina will play No. 5 Nicolas Almagro of Spain on Friday in Chela's fourth appearance in quarterfinals.
