Two-time defending champion Roger Federer beat Florian Mayer 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday to ease into the quarterfinals of the Gerry Weber Open. Germany's Mayer, who reached the quarterfinals last year in his Wimbledon debut, was twice a break up in the second set but squandered the lead both times by letting Federer break back.
