Canadian third seed Milos Raonic, the 2014 Washington champion, defeated Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis 7-6 (9/7), 6-3 to book a Friday quarter-final against U.S. eighth seed Jack Sock, who downed countryman Jared Donaldson 7-6 (8/6), 6-2.

American Tommy Paul upset 11th-seeded Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-3, while qualifier Yuki Bhambri of India defeated Guido Pella of Argentina 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-1.

India's Yuki Bhambri suffered a disappointing loss against 15th seed Kevin Anderson at the ATP Citi Open and thereby brought an end to his impressive campaign.

In the third set it really seemed like Thiem, the number one seed of the tournament, and seventh seed in the world, would win the match.

This is only the second time Bhambri has reached the last-eight round of an ATP Masters tournament after his run to the quarter-final at Chennai Open in 2014.

The 25-year-old earned 90 points, which should help him touch 150 in the world rankings.

Anderson has never shared a court with Bhambri except in workouts.

After losing the first set, Thiem signaled to Anderson that his return was in, even after the linesman called the ball out.

Anderson is aware that it is both an opportunity and a challenge. "I felt I had a shot after winning the second set but got broken early in the third set and it's much harder to come back against a big server".

" I have practiced with him before but that was a few years ago". In his second Tour quarterfinal, Bhambri meets Kevin Anderson.

The Citi Open quarter-final between Bhambri and Anderson will not start before 4pm local time, 1:30am IST.

Anderson broke Thiem in the second game of the match and led 3-0 when a long rain delay struck.
