Marseille, France, 19 February 2016 |

Nick Kyrgios has stopped Teymuraz Gabashvili in straight sets to advance to the quarterfinals of the Open 13 in Marseille.

Kyrgios claimed a 6-4 6-4 victory, setting up a last eight battle with French No.3 seed Richard Gasquet.

Gasquet overcame Ernests Gulbis 7-6(5) 6-3 on Thursday.

Kyrgios famously saved nine match points to defeat Gasquet in the second round at Wimbledon in 2014, part of his breakthrough run to the quarterfinals at the All England Club that year.
