GSTAAD, Switzerland (AP) -- Paul-Henri Mathieu of France beat Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-6 (3), 7-6 (8) at the Swiss Open on Wednesday to reach his first quarterfinal this season.

Mathieu, who was injured throughout 2011, earned the key points with the third-seeded Wawrinka converting just two of nine break chances in the second-round match.

A former top-20 player, Mathieu is ranked No. 172 after dropping into the high 700s.

Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil downed fourth-seeded Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, and fifth-seeded Feliciano Lopez of Spain rallied to beat Czech Jan Hajek, 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-4.
