Umag, Croatia (Sports Network) - Top-seeded former champion Fernando Verdasco and second-seeded Croatian favorite Marin Cilic were easy quarterfinal winners Friday at the Croatia Open tennis event.

The Spanish lefthander Verdasco, who titled here in 2008, blew past Russian wild card Andrey Kuznetsov 6-2, 6-2, while last year's Umag runner-up Cilic popped eight aces in handling American Wayne Odesnik 6-4, 6-0 on the red clay at ATP Stadium.

Cilic lost to Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov in last year's finale here.
