Monte Carlo : Defending champion Juan Carlos Ferrero struggled with heat and his forehand but still beat Argentina's Gaston Gaudio 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 yesterday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo Masters. The top-seeded Ferrero was visibly exhausted after the three-hour match under a scorching sun on center court. Ferrero now faces countryman Alberto Martin in the quarterfinals of the $2.62 million tournament. Second-seeded Carlos Moya, last year's runner-up, advanced with a 6-2, 6-4 win over countryman Tommy Robredo. He next plays France's Julien Boutter. (AP)
