Tokyo: Second seed David Nalbandian went out of the AIG Japan Open on Thursday, losing 7-6 (7-4) 3-6 6-4 to Gilles Muller of Luxembourg. Nalbandian was one of nine seeds - also including Andrei Pavel - to go out of the tournament in the day's action. Top seed Lleyton Hewitt was also made to struggle, but eventually battled past Japan's Takao Suzuki in three sets. Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan joined Hewitt in the quarter-finals after his Swis opponent Marco Chiudinelli withdrew injured with the score at 6-3 4-1. (AP)
