Pironkova held serve just once in the match. Ivanovic had more success on Pironkova’s first serve than her own. The Serb won 65 percent of the points when her opponent got in her first serve, compared with 61 percent when her own first serve landed in.
Italian doubles partners Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci each won to set up a meeting in the quarterfinals. Vinci upset second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 6-4.
Federer, in his 34th consecutive quarterfinal at a major tournament, will meet sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych, who defeated 11th-seeded Nicolas Almagro 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-1 in 2 hours.
“At least good that I didn’t stay that long on court, that I was able to save some energy, as well,” Berdych said.
