8-time champ Federer beats Zverev for Halle quarterfinal

Roger Federer Roger Federer has won seven Wimbledon titles

Querrey, the 2010 Queen's champion, is no slouch on grass either, but Muller held his nerve in two tight sets to clinch his first win over the world No 28.

Roger Federer booked a familiar spot in the quarterfinals of the Gerry Weber Open when he defeated Mischa Zverev 7-6 (4), 6-4 on Thursday.

With the quarterfinals underway, Swiss tennis star Roger Federer is set to face Florian Mayer.

Mayer's record against Federer read seven defeats and no victories ahead of Friday's meeting, and he got off to a poor start in front of his home crowd when dropping his second service game.

The second set followed a not dissimilar pattern, with some fast-and-furious points and an early break for Federer in the fifth game.

Again the Swiss had the chance to close out the match with Mayer serving at 3-5, but in the end, Federer had to do it with balls in his hand, and did so easily, 6-4.

Federer leads Mayer 7-0 in their head-to-head series. "He plays a bit different on the serve and the forehand, which is different to the regular forehand technique we see. I'm glad I could win in two sets and have the feeling I played well". Big and strong, and super excited to be on the tour, and working hard.

"I don't know him that well yet so it's a match where I'll most likely focus on my own game", Federer said of facing the Russian in the semifinals. The 33-year-old was a nightmarish 2-11 on the season prior to this week, but he has advances so far with wins over Benoit Paire and recent Stuttgart champ Lucas Pouille.

Gasquet will now play the victor of the last quarter-final between local favourite fourth seed Alexander Zverev and Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut later on Friday.
