Roger Federer cruises into Wimbledon quarter-finals

  • Roger Federer and Serena Williams

Djokovic would be the bigger threat to Nadal since the Serbian is 26-25 versus the Spaniard, but the two have only played three times on grass, with the latest meeting coming in the 2011 Wimbledon final.

They eventually sent him back to the locker room with a standing ovation, acknowledging the talent displayed by Federer during a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over 22nd-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France in the fourth round Monday, yes, but also his superiority over the course of a career that has produced eight Wimbledon championships and 20 Grand Slam titles, both records for a man.

Since seeds were introduced in the 1920s, it's the first time none of the top-10 have reached the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon. "I knew he was much better than that first set and he showed that". "It was a good win but it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest".

Later on Monday, Rafael Nadal also extended his streak of not dropping a set in Wimbledon. She has gone past the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012.

Pliskova, who is the top seed remaining in the women's tournament, should be seen as Williams' top threat to reach the final since she beat the American once in a major at the 2016 U.S. Open, which was won by Kerber. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set, 6-4.

Lurking on Federer's side of the draw is an intriguing unknown: the unseeded Mackenzie McDonald, who sounds as if he should have drifted down from the Highlands but is in fact a 23-year-old Californian with a solid pedigree and little to lose.

The world number one faces Czech world number 93 Jiri Vesely, who has never got past the fourth round of a Grand Slam.

However, Federer has held all of his 55 service games this year and last dropped serve in the semi-finals in 2017 - 81 service games ago.

The 19-year-old 31st seed has already put in his best performance at a Slam and is bidding to prevent Isner, 14 year his senior, making the quarter-finals for the first time.

Williams, who is seeking an eighth Wimbledon title, was even more efficient, needing 62 minutes to dispatch the 120th-ranked Evgeniya Rodina, 6-2, 6-2.

Elsewhere in fourth round action, Dominika Cibulkova launched a scathing attack on Wimbledon's officials after a line call controversy marred her 6-4, 6-1 win against Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei.

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on", said the eight-time champion after seeing off France's Adrian Mannarino in straight sets on Monday. "After she was complaining, they were talking in Chinese, whatever language". Shouldn't really happen, but thankfully they do for me.

In her third Wimbledon quarterfinal, Cibulkova faces former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

Beaten by Serena in the 2016 final, Kerber takes on Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, a 6-7 (6/8), 6-3, 6-2 victor against Belgian world number 47 Alison Van Uytvanck.
