There he will meet the world No.1 Rafael Nadal who claimed his 50th win at the US Open in dispatching Ukraine's Alexander Dolgopolov 6-2, 6-4, 6-1.
On the bright side, the 19-time major champion also spent some time drawing a crowd by hitting in Central Park and has put together two straight-set wins in a row against opponents in their 30s.
Federer will face Juan Martin del Potro in the last eight as he continues his quest to secure a sixth US Open and 20th Grand Slam title of his career.
The state of the 36-year-old Federer's physical condition has been a talking point throughout the tournament, because he tweaked his back during a match in August, interrupting his preparation for Flushing Meadows.
The No. 1 seed is back into the quarters in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2013, when he won his second of two U.S. Open titles.
"If it's Roger Federer, of course I am excited to play that match, and of course it's special to play against him here in NY for the first time in our career", Nadal said.Читайте также: HP, Lenovo, Dell VR Headsets Coming To Windows 10 October 10th
The third seed is now looking forward to a first meeting in NY against Del Potro since 2009, when the Argentinian won his only grand slam title.
"To play him here after our epic final in 2009 is great and I think we're both looking forward to it, or at least I am".
"I just had all these chances in multiple moments". It was a good match. "Started in the day, finished in the night".
He cruised past the No. 33 seed in straight sets-6-4, 6-2, 7-5-sending notice to the rest of the field in the process after he missed the 2016 U.S. Open following knee surgery.
Del Potro long has been popular, but became even more so since returning from three operations on his left wrist that kept him out of Grand Slam action for two years and sent his ranking out of the top 100.
When a reporter relayed to del Potro that Federer had spoken glowingly about him, del Potro responded: "Well, of course, I admire him, too".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
