Federer moves on….Tipsarevic joins Murray on the injured list.


Roger Federer reached the quarter-finals of the Swiss Indoors in Basle on Wednesday but did not have things his own way against Finland’s world number 66 Jarkko Nieminen. Federer dropped the second set before rallying to claim a 6-1 4-6 6-3 success in one hour and 35 minutes. The Swiss great also saw potential semi-final foe Andy Murray removed from his path – the Briton withdrew from the tournament due to injury.

In the day’s only other second-round match, Marcos Baghdatis won an entertaining three-set tussle with Germany’s Michael Lammer 7-6 (7/2) 6-7 (2/7) 6-3 to reach the last eight, where he will expect to face top seed Novak Djokovic. In first-round action, seventh seed Andy Roddick beat Tommy Haas 6-3 6-4, while sixth seed Janko Tipsarevic retired injured trailing 5-1 to Florian Mayer, something which hurts his chances of appearing in the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London. There were also wins for Radek Stepanek and Lukasz Kubot.
