Federer sets up Anderson clash in Miami

28th March 2019, 00:52 by Michael Holland

Roger Federer beat Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to set up a Miami Open quarter-final clash with Kevin Anderson.

Federer, who is attempting to win a fourth Miami Open, hit 22 winners, winning nine of the last 11 games to beat the 13th seed 6-4 6-2 in one hour and one minute.

"I thought it was an interesting match," Federer said. "There were really long rallies, tactical points. The big points went my way and that was the difference.

"I'm serving great this week and hope I can keep it up in the next round."

Federer will now play South Africa's Anderson, who beat Australia's Jordan Thompson 7-5 7-5 to reach the quarters.

"Kevin is a great player, he's got one of great serves in the game at the moment," Federer said. "In America on hard courts, that's his cup of tea, but I'm playing well and I hope I can bother him."
