Janko Tipsarevic claims a 6-2 6-2 victory over Frederico Gil in Barcelona to grab a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Janko Tipsarevic has eased into the quarter-finals of the Barcelona Open after defeating Frederico Gil in two straight sets.

The Serbian fifth seed sailed through the first set, clinching it 6-2 with his Portuguese opponent failing to impose his game on the clay-court match.

Gil tried to force an impact in the second and almost snatched a break of serve but the world number eight fought off his advances.

The Portuguese professional struggled to hold on to his serve, which allowed his 27-year-old competitor to execute a number of powerful shots to take advantage and win the set 6-2.

Tipsarevic will face either Rafael Nadal or Robert Farah in the next stage of the competition.
