Top-seeded and defending champion Mikhail Youzhny was an easy second-round winner Thursday at the Swiss Open tennis event.
The Russian veteran moved into the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-4 handling of Frenchman Kenny De Schepper on the red clay at Roy Emerson Arena.
Youzhny will meet Dutchman Robin Haase on Friday in a rematch of last year's final, which was won by the Russian. A seventh-seeded Haase moved on with a 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 victory over Swiss wild card Henri Laaksonen on Day 4 in Gstaad.
