ESTORIL, Portugal, April 17 (UPI) -- Roger Federer, playing through a steady drizzle in Portugal Thursday, reached the quarterfinals of the Estoril Open with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Victor Hanescu.
Federer, still looking for his first trip to a final this year, will play either Frederico Gil or Joao Sousa in the quarterfinals.
