In a battle of big serves, ninth-seeded Andy Roddick beat Daniele Bracciali of Italy 6-7 (6) 7-6 (4) 7-6 (5).

America's Roddick served 22 aces and Bracciali had 19 in a match that lasted two hours and 34 minutes.

Frenchman Gael Monfils also advanced after a 6-4 7-5 victory over Russian Marat Safin.

German 14th seed Tommy Haas defeated Spain's Fernando Verdasco 6-3 6-4, while Max Mirnyi of Belarus put out Xavier Malisse, who reached last week's Toronto quarter-finals, 7-5 4-6 6-3.
