Four days of rest in between US Open matches might have been just what Roger Federer needs as he takes the court on Wednesday for a quarter-final encounter against Andre Agassi.

"I have enough days off," said Federer, who benefitted from a walkover in the round of 16. "Now I'll be a hundred percent physically, so that is an advantage.

"It will be a tough match, everybody knows that."

Switzerland's Federer has won the last three meetings between the two tennis giants after Agassi captured the first three.

The last time they met was in the final in Indian Wells earlier this year with Federer coming out on top 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"It is definitely nice to play him, especially in New York," Federer said.

"I played him in Houston. I've played him in Indian Wells, so now we're heading to the biggest stadium in the world, which is nice.

"It's going to be a good contrast - me trying to mix it up and him trying to not overpower me but kind of, you know, always get a hit, hit it harder, longer and stronger until I go away.
