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.

Gil was leading Sousa 7-6 (7-5) 0-1 when play was suspended for the day because of the inclement weather.

In other second-round matches, Jiri Vanek defeated Michael Berrer 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 and Denis Gremelmayr ousted Teimuraz Gabashvili 7-6 (8-6), 6-1.

Vanek will meet Gremelmayr in the quarterfinals, Nikolay Davydenko will face Marc Gicquel and Flavio Cipolla will take on Florent Serra.
