Swiss legend Roger Federer edged past Tomas Berdych 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (8-6) in a back-and-forth quarter-final match at the Miami Open, clinching victory after saving two match points in the third-set tie-breaker.

Federer dominated the beginning of the match on Thursday in much the same way he did when these two players squared off at the Australian Open earlier this year. The 35-year-old Swiss tennis great, who routed Berdych 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 in the third round in Melbourne in January, got an early break of serve on Stadium court and a second one on an outrageous, high-lofted drop shot that the surprised Berdych did not even try to track down. He then closed out the set by holding serve in the eighth game.

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer had to be at the top of his game to defeat Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6(5), 7-6(4) in the fourth round of the Miami Open. Bautista Agut was in excellent form and played at a very high level in the duel, but it wasn't enough to best the 4th-seeded Swiss powerhouse on Tuesday.

Federer had beaten Bautista five times previously without the Spaniard being able to take a set, and on Tuesday he continued with that dominant style, although he was not up to the form he had demonstrated so far this year. The two-time Miami champion produced 30 winners and 32 unforced errors, moving to the quarter-finals, where he will go up against the Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych.
