The win extended Serb's Grand Slam winning streak to 25 matches and put him into the quarterfinals of his 12th straight Grand Slam event.

He'll next face either France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland, whose Sunday match was under way.

Also advancing Sunday was Federer, the 2009 French Open winner and four-time runner-up. The Swiss superstar got past Belgian David Goffin 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4.

His next opponent will be the winner of Sunday's Tomas Berdych-Juan Martin del Potro match-up.
