British number one Cameron Norrie advanced to the Korea Open quarterfinals with a 6-2 6-2 triumph against Japan’s Kaichi Uchida.
In each set, the 27-year-old broke two of his rival’s service games to advance in an hour and three minutes.
The opponent of the British player, who is seeded two in the competition, will either be American Jenson Brooksby or Korean number one Kwon Soon-woo.
Norrie has achieved two victories this year and debuted in the top 10.
He also advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals, when eventual champion Novak Djokovic defeated him.
Norrie revealed he intends to utilize the Korea and Japan Open to advance to the top eight on the Race To Turin and secure a berth at the season-ending ATP Finals in November.
