But the unseeded Spaniard earned a piece of personal history after that, winning the second set - the first time he had ever done that against the Swiss maestro.

The 37-year-old Federer had been forced to fight in his opening match on Wednesday, admitting that he came "very close" to defeat against Russia's Daniil Medvedev.

"I was able to mix it up".

Wang Qiang, ranked 24th, and 40th-placed Zhang head a list of four Chinese players in the current top 100, and there are 11 in the top 200 including 17-year-old U.S. Open junior champion Wang Xiyu. I mean, he really caught fire, I thought.

The German will next face 11th-seeded Briton Kyle Edmund, who produced a clinical performance to beat Nicolas Jarry of Chile 7-6 (5) 6-3 in 90 minutes.

Federer, who himself acted as a ball boy in his youth, said he felt most of the young helpers understood the pressure players are under, but that it was vital they enjoyed a good experience at tournaments. "I did what I can. I'm happy to execute everything as I planned when playing against Jeremy". "I have been talking with the doctors every day".

Fourth seed Alexander Zverev also barrelled into the quarters with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Alex de Minaur. This match was a ideal example of that it doesn't matter how many points do you win, but which points do you win, and even being under the weather, Del Potro did just that.

"I played an opponent who has a lot of confidence", Zverev said. "I am feeling very fresh and have a lot of energy so I'll have no excuses".

"He knows how to play, definitely". It's a pity that I lost the opportunity to play with Federer, to see what's the difference between us. Lendl flew back to the United States to have wrist surgery, which Zverev said was caused by playing too much golf. We have one and a half months off in our season, and that's end of November and December.

The Swiss, whose ranking as number two in the world is under threat this week, was broken three times in the second set to force a decider but eventually prevailed 6-3 2-6 6-4. "I served, I think, 80 percent in that second set and got broken twice".

Del Potro, the third seed, said that he is suffering from a virus and reviewing his health "hour by hour", after labouring past France's Richard Gasquet.

Novak Djokovic cruised through his second-round match, but Juan Martin del Potro had to retire after hurting his right knee in a fall.
