Federer Overcomes Rough Start to Reach Montreal Quarterfinals

MONTREAL Ė Second-seeded Swiss Roger Federer overcame a shaky start to defeat Spainís David Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 Thursday afternoon and book a berth in the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, Canada.

The 36-year-old Federer was outplayed from the baseline in the early going by the unseeded Ferrer, who broke the 19-time Grand Slam championís serve twice in taking the first set.

The Swiss also struggled more than usual on serve in the second set but managed to draw level with the Spaniard and then took full control of the match early in the third set when Ferrer made a series of unforced errors.

Federer grabbed a second service break late in the third set to effectively seal the victory and improve to 17-0 lifetime against the 35-year-old Spaniard.

Next up for Federer in Fridayís quarterfinals of this US Open tune-up event will be 12th-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut, who saved a match point in a narrow 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (2) victory Thursday over unseeded Frenchman Gael Monfils.
