French Open Results: Roger Federer Moves On To Quarterfinals

Novak Djokovic wasn't the only top seed in the men's draw at the 2012 French Open to struggle early in the fourth round. But just like Djokovic, Roger Federer rebounded from his slow start to move on to the quarterfinals.

Federer lost his first set to unseeded David Goffin, but stormed back for a 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 victory that gave him his eighth consecutive trip to the quarterfinals of the French Open. Federer, the No. 3 seed, hit 59 winners against Goffin, and won 82 percent of his first-serve points.

He now awaits a stiff challenge in the quarterfinals: Federer will face the winner of a fourth-round duel between Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin Del Potro.
