Seven-time champion Federer made it into the fourth round for the 15th time with a 7-6 (7/3), 6-4, 6-4 win over Germany's Mischa Zverev.

The Swiss great said: "I'm very happy now to sit back, relax a day and come back strong, hopefully, on Monday", when he faces Grigor Dimitrov, who has been nicknamed "Baby Fed".
"Every time I play against him he's stronger than the time before."
"I'm ready for a tough one but sure again, another exciting match because he's a great shotmaker."
All the men's and women's fourth round matches take place on Monday.
Third seed Federer was joined by Djokovic, who fended off being a break down in the first set and taken to a tie break in the third before beating Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (7/2).
"I'm delighted with the performance. I thought I raised the level of tennis," said three-time champion Djokovic after making the second week without dropping a set.
The second seed next faces Adrian Mannarino, who overturned French compatriot and 15th seed Gael Monfils in a five-setter.
