NEW YORK (AP)

Fourth-seeded David Ferrer advanced to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open on Tuesday, coming back from an hour-long rain delay to close out a 7-5, 7-6 (2), 6-4 victory over No. 13 Richard Gasquet.

Ferrer joined Rafael Nadal as the second Spanish player to make the quarterfinals at all four Grand Slams in one year. Nadal, not here in 2012 because of a knee injury, did it in 2008, 2010 and 2011.

Ferrer also beat Gasquet in the round of 16 at the Australian Open to make the quarterfinals.

Ferrer was leading 4-3 when the rain came and the players left the court. When they returned, they traded games before Ferrer broke serve, closing it out on his fifth match point.
