(AP) Rafael Nadal improved to 19-0 on hard courts in 2013 by returning to the U.S. Open quarterfinals.


He will not, however, play Roger Federer next.


The second-seeded Nadal, who counts the 2010 U.S. Open among his 12 Grand Slam titles, came back to beat 22nd-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 on Monday night in the fourth round.


Their match ended about 2 hours after Federer was upset in straight sets by 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo, Nadal's quarterfinal opponent. Had Federer won, he and Nadal would have played each other for the 32nd time and first at Flushing Meadows.


Against Kohlschreiber, Nadal faced only one break point, and saved it. Nadal has yet to lose a service game in the tournament.
