World number 119 Bellucci took just 75 minutes to polish off Wawrinka, ranked 24th, and claim a quarter-final tie against German veteran Nicolas Kiefer, who beat Spain’s Ivan Navarro 6-3 6-7 (3) 6-2.
On a fine day for Brazil, Bellucci’s compatriot Marcos Daniel also advanced to the last eight with a 6-3 7-6 (8) win over Frenchman Julien Benneteau.
Daniel will next play Frenchman Florent Serra, who took the first set over fourth seed Victor Hanescu before the Romanian retired from the tie due to an upset stomach.
