The eighth-ranked Zverev put away the match with a cross-court forehand that the 75th-ranked Australian couldn't handle.

Mahut, the oldest man in the draw at 35, was denied on two set points in the final tie-breaker, then sent a backhand crosscourt volley wide before a Raonic service victor ended matters. "I'm just happy to be through and happy to get the win", Zverev said. "Seven to six in the third is always something very nice", Zverev said. "This year, I haven't had that good a season".

Canada's Raonic, hoping to end an 18-month ATP title drought, blasted 26 aces in defeating France's Nicolas Mahut 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (10/8) on the Washington hardcourts where he won his biggest career title in 2014.

Yuki Bhambri moved into the quarters of Citi Open. He has dropped five finals since then, including a year ago at Wimbledon, and was nagged by a right leg injury that forced him out of five events.

Former Australian Open juniors victor Yuki Bhambri is into the quarter-finals of the ATP500 Washington Open, also known as the Citi Open.

India's Yuki Bhambri rallied to beat Argentina's Guido Pella and enter the quarterfinals of the Citi Open in Washington DC on Thursday. "It gives me a lot of confidence going into my next match". "This is where every tennis player wants to be", Bhambri said.

The Citi Open is a hard-court tuneup for the U.S. Open, which starts August 28.

Bhambri defeated Monfils 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 in a second round contest that lasted for nearly two hours, thus registering one of the most memorable wins of his career.
