The 22-year-old Croatian defeated the eight seed Norwegian for a final score of 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 on Friday. The fourth seeded Ćorić will next play Joao Sousa of Portugal, who bested sixth seed Mihail Kukushkin 7-6(8), 6-2.

Ćorić has reached the semis twice before this year in Dubai, where he lost to Swiss Roger Federer, and in Hertogenbosch, where he was defeated by Adrian Mannarino of France.
