The tournament, with world No. 1 Roger Federer already ousted, lost another highly ranked player when Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, the third seed, was taken down 6-4, 6-4 by Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.Cilic fired six aces and saved all three break points he faced against Pospisil, but the 77th-ranked Canadian made it more difficult than the Croat probably expected.Trailing 5-6, 0-40 in the second set, the Canadian saved three consecutive match points and hit a running forehand pass to cap a 33-shot rally before Cilic claimed victory in the tiebreak.Del Potro fired 17 winners, claiming all five points when crashing the net and turned back Nishikori's lone break chance to take the match in 72 minutes.
