CASABLANCA, Morocco (AP) -- The sixth-seeded Federico Delbonis of Argentina edged Canadian qualifier Filip Peliwo 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-4 Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of the Grand Prix Hassan II.

Delbonis, who won the Brazil Open last month, broke at 4-4 in the final set. He won six straight games to take the first set and lead 2-0 in the second. But Peliwo, the 2012 world junior champion, fought back to force a tiebreaker and leveled at one set apiece.

Meanwhile, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain advanced to the second round.

The eighth-seeded Garcia-Lopez beat Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan 7-6 (5), 7-6 (6) despite making seven double faults. Carreno Busta cruised past Tobias Kamke of Germany 6-1, 6-2.
