"It will be amusing that somebody other than Novak is still in", he said of his famous countryman. When asked about the potential for another clash with his rival, Federer said he was exciting for the opportunity to meet Nadal yet again.

"I was relieved I got through that one", Federer told reporters after defeating Edmund. Maybe because of the conditions, [it was] windier out there today.

Nadal will next face 12th seeded Russian Karen Khachanov who defeated big serving eighth seed American John Isner by 6-4, 7-6 (7-1).

Kecmanovic, ranked 130th in the world, had taken the first set against Yoshihito Nishioka 6-4 when the 74th-ranked Japanese retired because of injury.
