Federer posted a 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 win to set up a semi-final with the biggest server in the game, Ivo Karlovic after the eighth seed beat German Benjamin Becker 6-4, 6-4.

"It's like a penalty shootout playing him," said Federer of the leading ace-maker on the ATP this season with more than 1,000. You just pick a side on his serve and hope you are right. There's really no strategy."

Federer's win was his 65th of the season and lifted his record at the tournament to 54-9.
