Fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych recovered from a poor first set to beat Kevin Anderson of South African 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 and reach the Paris Masters quarterfinals on Thursday. The Czech was overpowered by Anderson's powerful serve and strong defense in the first set, where Anderson hit six aces and broke Berdych twice, while saving all three breakpoints on his own serve. But Berdcyh hit back and broke Anderson in the eighth game of the second set, and in the seventh game of the decider, before clinching the match with a backhand volley at the net. He next plays Gilles Simon of France, who advanced from the third round without hitting a ball after 15th-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan pulled out because of a recurrence of his right ankle injury.
