By AAP Newswire

Tournament No.7 seed Daria Gavrilova is through to the last 16 of the Ladies Open Lausanne, but not without a fight.

The Australian was involved in a tough three-set encounter with Switzerland's Ylena In-Albon, before winning 7-5 4-6 6-3.

The players were evenly matched throughout with Gavrilova winning 109 points to In-Albon's 100 in the tie, but her higher percentage of winners on second serve proved the difference.

Meanwhile Caroline Garcia eased into last 16 with a straight-sets win over Antonia Lottner.

The world number 22, who lost in the first round at Wimbledon, won 6-2 6-3.

Eighth-seeded Eugenie Bouchard was beaten 2-6 6-4 7-5 by Germany's Tamara Korpatsch.

At the Bucharest Open, second seed Viktoria Kuzmova had no difficulty in booking her place in the last 16 as she swept aside Dalila Jakupovic 6-2 6-2.

Sixth seed Laura Siegemund saw off Anhelina Kalinina 4-6 6-3 6-4 while Spaniard Aliona Bolsova came through 6-3 6-2 against Russia's Varvara Flink.
