New York : Swedish fifth seed Robin Soderling advanced to the US Open quarter-finals on Monday by defeating Spanish 21st seed Albert Montanes 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

The French Open runner-up to world number one Rafael Nadal will face the winner of a later match between Swiss second seed Roger Federer and Austrian 13th seed Jurgen Melzer for a berth in the semi-finals.

Soderling, ousted from his first US Open quarter-final last year by Federer, has lost 12 of 13 meetings with the 16-time Grand Slam champion.

But the Swede won their most recent meeting in a French Open quarter-final this year to snap Federer's run of 23 consecutive Grand Slam semi-finals.
