Ecuadorian Emilio Gomez advanced to the quarter-finals of the Dallas Open by edging out Serb Miomir Kecmanovic, the No 4 seed, 2-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4 at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex on Thursday.
Gomez, ranked No 102, will face the winner of the match between American John Isner, the No 5 seed, and German Daniel Altmaier next.
