Tournament favorite Guillermo Coria advanced to the quarter-finals after Nicolas Escude's retirement. The man from Ruffino, seeded three, started brightly as he pulled the hapless Escude round the court.
 

Coria made just three unforced errors in a first set that he won 6-0, before Escude promptly retired from the match allowing Coria the easiest possible route into the last eight. The man from Argentina, a semi-finalist last year, will now meet either Carlos Moya or Tommy Robredo.



Juan Ignacio Chela booked his place in the quarter-finals in Paris by seeing off Olivier Mutis. The Argentine 22nd seed lost the opening set against the Frenchman, but quickly found his rhythm in the next to level up. The third set was a tense affair and went to a tie-break, eventually won by Chela (7/5). Mutis, who shocked Amdy Roddick last week, ultimately paid the price for making 65 unforced errors in the match. Chela, who has looked good in Paris, eventually won the match 4-6 6-2 7-6 (7/5) 6-2.
