FOUR-time champion Roger Federer has defeated Australia's Bernard Tomic to earn a spot in the quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters.
Federer was barely troubled by Tomic as he cruised to a 6-2 6-4 third round win to move into the last eight on a day when Olympic champion Andy Murray was sent crashing out of the tournament.
“Overall I'm happy, but it's hard to judge my game in these quick conditions,'' said the Olympic silver medallist.
“I'm especially happy with my ball-striking, though my serve was a bit off. Overall it was a good performance, I'm playing as well as I want to right now.''
Short and sweet but, Mardy Fish next gonna be tricky!.
