BANGKOK (AP) - Gael Monfils defeated sixth-seeded Victor Troicki of Serbia 7-5, 7-5 in the second round of the Thailand Open on Thursday.

Monfils also reached the quarterfinals last week in Metz, his first tournament since May after being sidelined by a right knee injury.

The Frenchman used five breaks of serve to trump the three he lost, beating Troicki a third straight time. Monfils will meet 2009 champion Gilles Simon, who defeated Go Soeda of Japan 6-4, 6-4.

Bernard Tomic of Australia reached his first quarterfinal since April, rallying past Dudi Sela of Israel 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
