Del Potro, Sam Querry Cruise into Auckland Quarters Finals

Del Potro, Sam Querry Cruise into Auckland Quarters Finals

Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion and Auckland victor, beat Ferrer 6-4, 6-4 to continue his strong form from the end of last season, which included victory in Stockholm and losing the Basel final to Roger Federer.

Seventh-seeded Ferrer, who is yet to drop a set in the event, needed 75 minutes to defeat Chung 6-3, 6-2 and set up a meeting against Argentine second seed Juan Martin del Potro next.

In Sydney, 18-year-old Alex de Minaur continued to delight the home crowd with a 6-4 6-4 win against Feliciano Lopez and will face Benoit Paire in the semi-finals, after the Frenchman knocked out defending champion Gilles Muller.

"I tried to play consistent and aggressive because with Chung, he plays with power, and it's never easy", Ferrer said in a court-side interview.

"Bautista Agut is a risky player, he has experience in finals and he beat me in the past (at the 2014 Australian Open), so it's going to be hard".

Trump waives Iran sanctions, gives nuke deal 'last chance'
Mr Trump has argued behind the scenes that the nuclear deal makes the United States look weak, a senior USA official said. The restrictions could hit some firms and individuals whose sanctions were previously scrapped.

"It was a great year for me (in 2009), winning the first title of the year here in Auckland, so I'd like to repeat it for sure", the 29-year-old del Potro said.

In a battle between the 2016 and 2015 winners, the more recent champion Roberto Bautista Agut proved too good for Jiri Vesely with a 7-6, 7-2 victory to enter the semi-finals where he will play Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Friday.

"But I've been working hard to play this tennis and hopefully I can still improve in the next matches".

With top seed Jack Sock eliminated earlier in the day by unheralded German Peter Gojowczyk, del Potro is a red-hot favourite to lift his first Classic title since 2009.

"If he has a good day, he is very unsafe as a lefty, he serves well and volleys".
