Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut eased past France's Richard Gasquet in straight sets on Thursday to set up a potential quarter-final clash with Roger Federer at the ATP 500 tournament in Halle.

Elsewhere, Italy's Matteo Berrettini, who was crowned champion in Stuttgart last week, came from behind to beat compatriot Andreas Seppi 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 and secure a quarter-final clash with third-seeded Russian Karen Khachanov. Roger Federer was little wobbly at the beginning of the tiebreaker but by using his astuteness in tennis he wrapped up the set 7-6 (7-5).

Tsonga won the point and would go on to win the entire match, 6-4, 7-5.

The Frenchman is one of the few players who can boast of a flawless record on grass against eight-time Wimbledon champion Federer.
