Top-seeded Roger Federer made it to the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the first time thanks to a walkover, and Tim Henman also advanced Monday when Nicolas Kiefer quit in the fifth set because of an injured right hand. Federer moved on when No. 16 Andrei Pavel pulled out with a herniated disc in his lower back several hours before their match was to start.
