Colombia's Santiago Giraldo sent second-seeded Tommy Robredo packing Thursday, while two other seeded Spaniards made it safely into the quarter-finals of the US Men's Clay Court Championship.
Giraldo saved all four break points he faced en route to a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Robredo, who was making his Houston debut.
"I had a lot of chances in a lot of games, and every time it was 0-30, 15-30, I was hitting three in a row straight to the fence," Robredo said. "With this, there's no chance to win."
