Roger Federer Moves into Quarterfinals: Istanbul Open

roger federer moves into istanbul quarter finals tennis 2015

Roger Federer, the number two ranked tennis player in the world has moved into the quarterfinals of the Istanbul Open after defeating Jarkko Nieminen in two sets, 6-2, 7-5. This was the inaugural Open clay-court tournament. After this open, Federer will be moving over to the Madrid Open, then the Rome Open culminating where he may run into the number one player in the world Novak Djokovic. Djokovic pulled out of the Madrid Open to take a slight breather and focus on winning the upcoming French Open (Roland Garros) for the first time.

Federer never faced a break point, winning 93 percent of his first serves. He also served nine aces while Nieminen had none.

Federer will next play Daniel Gimeno-Traver, who upset sixth-seeded Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3, 6-3.

Also, fourth-seeded Santiago Giraldo beat wild-card entry Andrey Rublev 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 to reach the last eight.

Giraldo struggled at times against Rublev, with both players dropping their serve three times. Although Rublev, a 17-year-old Russian who is world No. 1 in juniors, had more aces — seven compared to three — Giraldo won more of his first-service points.

He next plays eighth-seeded Diego Schwartzman, who took less than one hour to beat Jurgen Melzer 6-0, 6-2.

Gimeno-Traver dropped serve once, but otherwise was hardly troubled, using five aces and breaking his opponent’s serve four times.
