MUNICH, Germany (AP) _ Tommy Haas and Wayne Ferreira, the last two seeded players left in the tournament, failed to survive the second round at the BMW Open on Thursday.

Franco Squillari of Argentina, upset the fourth-seeded Haas 6-2 6-7 (1-7), 6-1 to reach the quarterfinals.

Ferreira was two points away from winning the match against Michael Kohlmann when the German wild-card entry staged a spectacular comeback to beat the fifth-seeded South African 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 7-5.
