Wawrinka moves to US Open quarterfinals
NEW YORK (AP)
The day after his Swiss compatriot Roger Federer was knocked out of the U.S. Open, Stanislas Wawrinka won 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (6), 6-2 over fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych on Tuesday to make the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows for the second time.
This is the fourth time he's advanced this far in a major, the last coming earlier this year at Roland Garros.
Wawrinka's win came in Armstrong Stadium about 24 hours after Federer's loss to Tommy Robredo knocked him out in the fourth round.
After dropping the first set, Wawrinka served five aces in each of the next two, including one down the middle to close out the third-set tiebreaker.
