The quarterfinals of the $52,080 Dove Men & Care – La Legión Florianopolis ATP Challenger Tour 80 tournament are set. Daniel Dutra da Silva rallied past No. 5 seed Nicolas Kicker of Argentina 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 on Thursday at the Lagoa Iate Clube in Florianopolis, situated in the South region of Brazil.

The 33-year-old home favourite, who captured his 24th career title on the ITF Pro Circuit in Lima, Peru earlier this season, converted five of his nine break-point chances to advance after two hours and 44 minutes.

“It was a really tough battle, because he was playing very well. I am happy that I got back into the match and took advantage of the chance I had,” said Dutra da Silva.

The World No. 391 from Sao Paulo will next take on No. 4 seed Juan Ignacio Londero. The 28-year-old Argentine eased past Johan Nikles from Switzerland 6-1, 6-4 in one hour and 23 minutes.

In other action, Colombian qualifier Nicolas Barrientos continued his good run of form this week with a 7-6(3), 6-1 victory over Argentine alternate Gonzalo Villanueva. The World No. 550 won 56 per cent of the total points played to prevail after one hour and 38 minutes.
