Dan Goldie moved into the quarterfinals of the $293,400 Transamerica Open tennis tournament Thursday, defeating seventh-seeded Kevin Curren, 7-6, 7-6.
Curren became the seventh of eight seeded players to be eliminated this week at San Francisco's Cow Palace, leaving only top-seeded Ivan Lendl, who eliminated Jim Grabb, 7-5, 6-2.
Goldie, getting even for a loss to Curren last week in Los Angeles, fought off double set point in the first set and won four straight points to take the tiebreaker, 8-6.
He staved off another set point in the second set at 4-5, then won the tiebreaker, 7-4.
Goldie, who ranks 72nd, said he learned from last week's loss how to play Curren.
"I thought I knew how he was going to hit the ball, and I felt I could really return his serve," he said. "He didn't hurt me with it."
