There was a shock in the last eight at the 2017 Mercedes Open as No. 3 seed Tomas Berdych was defeated by Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in Stuttgart, Germany.
Benneteau failed to work a single break point against the promising star, who produced an utterly dominant display to set up a clash with Gilles Muller, a 6-3 3-6 6-4 victor against Aljaz Bedene.
Lopez, one of the few current players who likes to serve and volley, broke for a 4-2 lead in the second set, then broke Berdych's serve again in the seventh game of the final set.
