Tuesday - 7/3/2012, 9:52am  ET

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Seventh-seeded David Ferrer of Spain reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinal by beating No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 Tuesday under the Centre Court roof.

Ferrer saved all four break points he faced while eliminating the 2009 U.S. Open champion.

Ferrer had lost three previous times in the fourth round at the All England Club. He's now made it to at least the quarterfinals at all four Grand Slam tournaments.

Next for Ferrer is a matchup against No. 4 Andy Murray of Britain. They've split 10 previous head-to-head meetings.
