Tomas Berdych sets up a quarter-final meeting with Roger Federer courtesy of a victory over Nicolas Almagro in round four.

World number seven Tomas Berdych has seen off the challenge of Nicolas Almagro to seal his spot in the quarter-finals of the US Open.

There was very little to choose between the two players during the opening set, which headed into in a tie-break.

Following an even start, 26-year-old Berdych took control to run out a 7-4 winner.

That defeat appeared to knock Almagro's confidence as the Spaniard struggled to find any momentum.

As a result, the Czech Republic's Berdych dropped just five more games on his way to advancing through 6-4 6-1.

He will now face world number one Roger Federer, who progressed earlier today following Mardy Fish's injury-forced withdrawal.
