Kyle Edmund was supposed to be a tough hurdle since the Brit was coming from a 7-matches winning streak in Indian Wells where he won the Challenger 35 before reaching the 4th round.
However, Federer was in one of his days, and after a tough hold in the 3rd game, he grabbed a fast 5-0 lead before winning the opener 6-1.
The second set was more balanced. Federer got the decisive break in the 5th game, but he had to save 4 break points in the last 2 service games before winning 6-1 6-4 in 63 minutes.
Federer will face Hubert Hurkacz in the quarters after the Pole defeated Denis Shapovalov in 3 sets.
Head to head Roger Federer vs. Hubert Hurkacz
There is no head to head record between Federer and Hurkacz since they have never played each other so far. The Swiss should reach the semifinals in straight sets.
