Feliciano Lopez had had an easier task in the day’s opening singles match, defeating Roberto Quiroz 6-3, 6-3. The Ecuadorian had five break points but failed to take any of them.

Carreno Busta and Marcel Granollers paired up for the last match of the day and won the doubles to complete the sweep, beating Gonzalo Escobar and Diego Hidalgo 6-4, 6-7(5), 7-6(2).
