PARIS (AP) -- Fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych rallied past Kevin Anderson of South African 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters on Thursday.
 
The Czech was overpowered by Anderson's powerful serve and strong defense in the first set, where Anderson had six aces and broke Berdych twice, while saving all three breakpoints on his own serve.
 
But Berdcyh broke Anderson in the eighth game of the second set, and in the seventh game of the decider.
 
He'll play Gilles Simon, who advanced from the third round without hitting a ball after 15th-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan pulled out because of a right ankle injury.
