Federer reaches Rotterdam quarterfinals

Our Champ continued into the quarterfinals at Rotterdam completing a 6-3, 6-4 win over Thiemo De Bakker in just over an hour.

It was another consummate performance from Roger and he played some exhilarating tennis winning 92% of his first serves on the way to taking the first set. De Bakker tried to fight back but was overwhelmed by a dramatically in form Swiss champ and did not stand a chance against the imperious shot making from Roger. The second set went with serve until the champ broke in the 3 rd. game and De Bekker was unable to contain our Roger’s ground strokes being forced in to making mistakes. This was vintage Roger and he absolutely deserves his place in the last eight.

Federer: "This is one of the nicest indoor stadiums in the world. The Dutch public is always enthusiastic and has knowledge of sport in general and tennis in particular. Thiemo de Bakker served good, he is an excellent player. He can be much higher on the ATP-ranking than he is now. "

Next up is Julien Benneteau (ATP 39) in the quarters.
