Moselle Open Tennis : Hurkacz, Monfils Advance To Quarter-Finals

Top seed Hubert Hurkacz toppled local hopeful Lucas Pouille 6-2 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals of the Moselle Open.

The pole is looking for his third hardcourt title this season after previously having won in Delray Beach and Miami.

He next faces former World Number one Andy Murray.

Pouille's compatriot and number three seed Gael Monfils faired better, beating Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Monfils beat Kohlschreiber in the Metz final in 2009 and now has a 15-2 lead over the German in head to head competition.

Up next for the Frenchman is the winner between Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia and Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
