Riera and Icardo continue their fine form, narrowly missing out on the final last time out in Icardo's native Valencia, taking care of Merino and Nogueira in little over an hour.

All other top eight seeds were in action as well on Thursday, with no surprises or third sets ever taking place as all favourites fulfilled their respective roles.

The last tournament before the summer break, it is important for all players to leave a lasting impression this week at the Martin Carpena ahead of an action-packed second half of the season.
