Walkow and Zielinski squandered two match points in the second set before coming through in the Match Tie-break. They will next play Jakub Paul and Leandro Riedi after they received a walkover from Zizou Bergs and Tallon Griekspoor.

Elsewhere, at the Plava Laguna Croatia Open Umag, Croatians Ivan Sabanov and Matej Sabanov advanced to the semi-finals with a 7-5, 6-0 victory over Damir Dzumhur and Antonio Sancic. They will next face either top seeds Tomislav Brkic and Nikola Cacic or Roman Jebavy and Jiri Vesely.
