QUEBEC (AP) - Top-seeded Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia advanced to the quarterfinals of the WTA Bell Challenge tournament on Thursday with a 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3 win over Hungary’s Melinda Czink.

Hantuchova will play Marina Erakovic in the next round after the New Zealander advanced with a 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 win over seventh-seeded American Irina Falconi.

No. 6 Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic beat Croatia’s Mirjana Lucic 2-6, 6-1, 6-3, but it was a bad day for second-seeded Lucie Safarova, who was upset by fellow Czech player Andrea Hlavackova 7-6 (1), 7-5.

Safarova then lost in doubles as she and Michaella Krajicek were eliminated by Heather Watson and Kathrin Woerle 6-3, 7-6 (3).
