Guccione won the first set on a tie-break but Fish levelled matters in the second-set breaker and went on to win after an early break of serve in the final set put him on the way to a 6-7 7-6 6-4 success in two hours and 22 minutes.

Fish will take on Leonardo Mayer for a place in the semis after the Argentinian defeated fifth-seeded Russian Igor Kunitsyn 7-6 6-7 6-3.

Elsewhere in the second round, fourth seed Dudi Sela reached the last eight with a 6-4 3-6 6-1 win over American Robert Kendrick.

Next up for the Israeli is sixth seed Sam Querrey, who beat fellow American Ryan Sweeting 6-3 6-7 6-3.
