World No. 1 Roger Federer and Andy Murray made the quarterfinals at the Cincinnati Masters on Thursday.

The Swiss top seed Federer rallied for a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Spain's David Ferrer for his ninth straight win over the Spaniard to line up a meeting with Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt, who overcame American Sam Querrey 6-1, 2-6, 6-3.

Murray needed just one hour and 16 minutes to beat Czech Radek Stepanek 6-4, 6-1, and the Scot will face France's Julien Benneteau, a 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4) winner over Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

After notching his first career French Open crown and then taking his Grand Slam tally to a record 15 at Wimbledon, Federer took some time off as he and his wife, Mirka, welcomed the birth of twin daughters.

Spain's world number Rafael Nadal downed France's Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-5, 6-2, and fourth-seeded Serbian Novak Djokovic advanced with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over France's Jeremy Chardy.

Nadal, back from a two-month rest because of tendinitis in both knees, looked sharper than he had last week in Montreal, where he lost in the quarterfinals.

Nadal will face Czech Tomas Berdych, who beat Australian Chris Guccione 6-4, 6-3, while Djokovic will tackle another Frenchman, ninth-seeded Gilles Simon, who disposed eighth-seeded Russian Nikolay Davydenko 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-4.
