Fourth seeds Daniell and Brazilian partner Marcelo Demoliner fought back to beat Swedish wildcards Isak Arvidsson and Fred Simonsson 3-6 6-3 10-5 at the ATP tournament in Bastad.

Their next opponents are top seeds Andre Sa of Brazil and Robert Lindstedt of Sweden.

The third-seeded combination of Kiwi Artem Sitak and American Nicholas Monroe were eliminated in their quarter-final, going down 7-6 6-4 to German Dustin Brown and Australian Rameez Junaid.

Meanwhile, rain in Switzerland has postponed Kiwi No.1 Marina Erakovic's first round match at the Ladies Championship Gstaad for a second day. She is scheduled to play German fifth seed Annika Beck.
