The second seed, who is a six-time champion at the Aviation Club, defeated Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-3 in 60 minutes during the night session.
 
“I'm very happy how the match went," said Federer. "I think it was a good quality match from my side. I think Fernando played well for spells, but I think I was quite consistent."
 
Verdasco led 4-1 in the first set, producing a series of stunning winners to keep Federer on the back foot. But Federer regrouped to win five straight love service games – 20 points – to clinch the 30-minute opener.
 
 
Here are the first set stats ----

“It's not the first time it's ever happened to me, but it's a great comeback because I did feel that Fernando was hitting the ball well and came out and played very committed [and] serving well," added Federer.
 
Federer hit four aces and is now 11 aces away from striking the 9,000th ace of his career. He won 83 per cent of his first service points against Verdasco to reach the last eight.
 
He will play Richard Gasquet on Thursday not before 7:00pm UAE time...Federer leads Gasquet 13-2 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series.
 
“I'm looking forward to playing against him," said Federer. "Last time we played was Davis Cup final on that Sunday, in front of that big crowd, and it was a lot of pressure. I think this time is going to be a bit more relaxed going in."

Well goodness me, Fernando Verdasco started the match like an express train on steroids! I was stunned to watch as the score ticked by and began to fear it would be one of those horrible days best forgotten. It was hard to believe Roger Federer was trailing 1-4 in the first set.

But then, as quickly as the match had appeared to be slipping through his fingers, things turned around completely and it was Federer who stormed though the following games, winning the first set 6-4!! It's was stunning display of calm, yet determined athleticism.

Roger held onto this momentum to clinch the match in an hour. All in all it was an exhilarating match to watch. Verdasco was briefly on fire at the start, only to be eclipsed by Roger who does appear to be playing himself into great form in time for the later stages of this competition.

Its a good job Roger did close this match out fairly swiftly as he is scheduled to play Richard Gasquet tomorrow ~ not before 7pm local time, that's 3pm GMT
