Paris:

Roger Federer stormed into the French Open semi-finals on Tuesday with a 7-5, 1-6, 6-1, 6-2 win over Spain's Tommy Robredo.

The top seed dropped a Grand Slam set for the first time since the 2006 US Open but overcame the rare lapse to romp to his eighth consecutive win over the Spanish ninth seed.

Federer will now take on either Russian fourth seed Nikolay Davydenko or Guillermo Canas, the 19th seeded Argentinian, for a place in the final.

The victory also kept him firmly on course for an widely-anticipated title showdown on Sunday against double defending champion Rafael Nadal who plays his quarter-final against fellow Spaniard, and 1998 winner, Carlos Moya on Wednesday.
