(AP) Turns out, there is a Swiss man in the U.S. Open quarterfinals. Just not Roger Federer.


The day after Federer came up short, Stanislas Wawrinka served 14 aces en route to a 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (6), 6-2 victory over No. 5 Tomas Berdych to make the round of eight at Flushing Meadows for the second time.


Wawrinka's first trip came in 2010. This marks the fourth time he's advanced this far in a major, the last coming earlier this year at Roland Garros.


Wawrinka's win came in Armstrong Stadium about 24 hours after Federer's loss to Tommy Robredo knocked him out in the fourth round.


After dropping the first set, Wawrinka served five aces in each of the next two, including a 131-mph serve down the middle to close out the third-set tiebreaker.
