Federer cruises into his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final

Federer cruises into his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final

This exchange was made possible after Roger Federer took to channelling his inner Sachin Tendulkar while playing his Round of 16 match on Centre Court at the All England Club on "Manic" Monday.

Elsewhere, Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France.

Rafael Nadal of Spain plays a backhand against Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic during their Men's Singles fourth round match on day seven of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

On Wednesday he will need to break new ground again if he is to keep alive his Wimbledon dream and beat eight-times champion Roger Federer for the first time.

It would also give him a last-8 clash against Juan Martin del Potro, the 5th seeded Argentine, or unseeded Gilles Simon of France. Del Potro was leading 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/5), 5-7 when his tie with Simon was halted for the night due to darkness.

Should Anderson face Federer on Centre Court it would be only his second visit to the grasscourt citadel - the first time ending in defeat by home favourite Andy Murray.

"He's got weapons, a big serve and a big forehand", said Djokovic of the world number 40.

"I'm going to have to really take it to him". I served well when I needed to. "For me, I'm very happy to be back in the second week". Djokovic was kept waiting in the wings till after 7pm local time before he could start swinging his racket against the Russian but there was no stopping the Serb once he got on court.

The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis.


"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on".

An eight-time victor of the men's singles at the All England Club, Federer was an overwhelming favorite against the 22nd seed and never looked like falling victim to a huge upset.

The overall goal is try to win the tournament. The 13th seed won all 20 of his service games.

Bizarrely, organisers chose to put a mixed doubles match on Centre Court, which was concluded under the roof after sunset. Well, you might know a thing or two about her.

As it stands, the 17-time Grand Slam champion is now on 8,950 points while Federer, who has to win a ninth Wimbledon title to retain the full 2,000 points, is now on 8,720.

The world number two has also now not dropped serve since the semi-finals a year ago. "It was a good win but it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest".

Cibulkova went on to advance to a third Wimbledon quarterfinal, following 2011 and 2016. His problem has always been the first week of Wimbledon, not the second week.

Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens have all been eliminated already. In the women's draw it is being generated by a mix of old and young aspirants after the filleting of the top 10 which left only seventh seed Karolina Pliskova upright after six days. She is seeded 25th after missing last year's tournament while pregnant. "That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for to save energy for the rest of the tournament". I am excited. It will be a good result for me.
