British number two Aljaz Bedene was knocked out in the quarter-finals of the Hamburg Open after a 6-4 7-5 defeat by Fabio Fognini.

Italian Fognini suffered problems with his serve, failing to hit a single ace and double-faulted five times.

He still managed to save two out of the three break points he faced against Bedene, 26, on his way to victory.

Former world number one Rafael Nadal reached the last four with a 6-3 6-2 triumph over Pablo Cuevas.
