Australian Lleyton Hewitt has advanced to the quarter-finals of the BMW Open with a straight sets win over Holland’s Thiemo de Bakker.

Hewitt recovered from a 0-3 deficit in the first set to reach his fourth ATP World Tour quarter-final of the year.

The world No.55, sets up a clash with fourth seed Tomas Berdych following his 6-3, 6-4 win over de Bakker.

Berdych survived a scare against German Andreas Beck, before regaining his composure to win 1-6, 6-4, 7-6(4).

The 23 year old Czech, survived 10 aces from Beck, while firing seven service winners of his own, to win in two hours and 30 minutes. Berdych converted two of 13 break point chances and saved five of eight break points against him.

Berdych is through to his first ATP World Tour quarter-final of the season improving to a 11-10  record. The former No.9, who has been playing unconvincingly this year, managed  a fourth round appearance at the Australian Open (l. to Federer).
