New York: Tomas Berdych and Stanislas Wawrinka set-up a US Open last-16 clash on a heavy, humid Sunday before world number one Novak Djokovic and defending champion Andy Murray took center stage.

Fifth seed Berdych, who defeated five-time winner Roger Federer on his way to the semi-finals last year, eased past French 31st seed Julien Benneteau, 6-0, 6-3, 6-2.

Swiss ninth seed Wawrinka, a quarter-finalist in 2010, got past unseeded Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, the former world number eight but now down at 53 in the world, 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (1/7), 7-6 (9/7).
