Any other players to take out 5 higher seeds at one tournament?

Let's give Hubie Hurkacz some credit: beat 5 higher seeded players in a row.

With 32 seeds, that's the maximum. Anybody else equaled this?
yea he beat the best player in the tournament, Tsitsipas so he deserves it for sure. I just wish this choking Sinner gave as good of match as Stepanoe did but it wasn't to be.

I may have misinterpreted a little, the wording is a little ambiguous. I'm not sure if you're looking for a low seed who beat higher seeds or just a series of wins over seeds. If it's the latter, another good one would be Serena Williams at the 2007 Australian Open, where she took out six seeds:

#27 Santangelo
#5 Petrova
#11 Jankovic
#16 Pe'er
#10 Vaidisova
#1 Sharapova

The first to cross my mind.

If this also includes unseeded players (I'm struggling to think of other examples involving players with low seedings), here are some more examples.

At Montreal in 1997, Woodruff beat:
#16 Siemerink
#2 Ivanisevic
#7 Philippoussis
#4 Kafelnikov
#6 Kuerten

At Toronto in 2002, Canas beat:
#10 Federer
#5 Kafelnikov
#2 Safin
#3 Haas
#12 Roddick

At Indian Wells in 2005, Clijsters beat:
#16 Asagoe
#30 Linetskaya
#23 Martinez
#4 Dementieva
#1 Davenport

And then immediately after at Miami in 2005, Clijsters beat:
#24 Frazier
#12 Dechy
#5 Myskina
#4 Dementieva
#1 Mauresmo
#2 Sharapova

Did Nalbandian do this at any of his Madrid or Paris 2007 wins? I know he took down at least four in the former (Big 3 + Berdych) and three in the latter (Fedal + Ferrer) but I’m not sure about the others he faced.

Yes Nalbandian beat #14 Moya, #1 Federer, #5 Ferrer, #10 Gasquet and #2 Nadal in Paris.

Dang, TT knows its stuff!

Ya I guess if unseeded, 6 is possible, and with IW and miami doing 64 seeds, even 7 is theoretically possible.

Fwiw, HH five were
6-shapavolov
12-raonic
2-tsitsipas
4-rublev
21-sinner.

Close, but only four higher seeds beaten in the end - #10 Berdych, #5 Nishikori, #4 Wawrinka and #9 Nadal. Had Murray beaten Mischa Zverev in the fourth round there's every chance it could have been five.
Still, vastly more amazing than doing it at a masters with most of the top players missing. Until Federer's 2017 AO no-one had done it since Wilander at the French Open in the early 80s.

I thought that Roberto Carretero might have done this at Hamburg in 1996, but then remembered that his opponent in the final Corretja was unseeded and only ranked 66 in the world at the time. He beat 4 seeded players including the #3 and RG champion in waiting Kafelnikov to reach the final.

By far the most random masters series / super 9 title winner I can think of, far more so than Woodruff and Portas. He was ranked 143 in the world and was a qualifier. More than 25% of his total career tour level match wins came during that one week, and after that triumph he went on to lose 18 out of his next 19 matches in ATP tour events.
