Three players retired from matches in the women’s draw, with French Open finalist and top-seeded Simona Halep pulling out due a sore right shoulder when she was leading 5-7, 3-2 against Annika Beck of Germany. Fourth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain retired when China’s Zheng Jie was leading 7-5, 0-1; and Vania King left the court in the third set against fellow American Coco Vandeweghe, who was leading 6-7 (6), 6-0, 2-1.

Verdasco earned the first break of his match in the 12th game of the first set when Huta Galung knocked an easy backhand out.

In the second set, Verdasco broke the Dutch home favorite in the fourth game with a forehand passing shot. Verdasco saved a break point in his final service game before serving out the match.

Verdasco will next play Jurgen Melzer after the Austrian beat Lukas Lacko 5-7, 6-3, 6-3. Joao Sousa of Portugal also advanced, along with seventh-seeded Frenchman Nicolas Mahut.
