The 20-time Grand Slam champion and top seed will meet 13th seed Borna Coric on Saturday after the Croatian defeated unseeded Australian Matthew Ebden 7-5, 6-4. I honestly thought it was going to a third set there, but it's extraordinary how Federer seems to find a way to win matches.
"I think he raised his tennis level in the second set and I knew there would be long points".

The top four players in the world - Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro - had already qualified for London.
Zverev, now under the tutelage of Ivan Lendl, said he is pleased with his overall progress, even if a maiden Grand Slam remains elusive.
"Maybe thanks to Wednesday's game I won today, because I felt more calm at important moments".
Nishikori, a finalist in Tokyo last week, was forced to save five break points in the opening game of the match before eventually succumbing to the growing pressure. "It's always easier to get there - but then staying there is always the tougher part".
