Result: Denis Istomin too strong for Dmitry Tursunov

Denis Istomin defeats Dmitry Tursunov to set up a quarter-final meeting with Juan Martin del Potro at the Sydney International.

Fourth seed Denis Istomin has advanced to the last eight of the Sydney International with a 7-6[5] 6-2 win over Russia's Dmitry Tursunov.

The Uzbek had to fend off seven break points and was pushed all the way in a tight first set, which he edged after taking it to a tie-breaker.

Istomin took both break-point opportunities that he managed to carve open to take the second set 6-2 in clinical fashion.

He will play Juan Martin del Potro, who beat Radek Stepanek in three sets, for a place in the semi-finals.
