Roger Federer reached the French Open quarterfinals for the 12th time on Sunday, becoming the oldest man in 28 years to make the last-eight of a Slam.
The 37-year-old eased past Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer
6-2, 6-3, 6-3 and will face either close friend and Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka or Greek sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas for a semifinal spot. “It’s fabulous that I can spend this time in Paris,” said Federer who last played the tournament in 2015 when he made the quarterfinals – where he lost to Wawrinka. The Greek star, meanwhile, defeated Federer in the last 16 of the Aus-
tralian Open in January.
