Rafael Nadal joins Roger Federer in Wimbledon quarter-finals

Federer's impressive defensive shot quickly went viral, with many cricket fans applauding his technique online.

Novak Djokovic insists it's only fair that he should play his Wimbledon quarter-final on Centre Court on Wednesday, handing the All England Club a dilemma over relegating Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to Court One. That year Federer beat Gilles Simon on No. 1 Court in the quarterfinals.

Gulbis has played 3 successive 5-set matches to get this far and is bidding to become just the 6th qualifier to reach the last-8 at Wimbledon.

Del Potro trails world number one Nadal 10-5 in career meetings.

"[He has] this very calm aura that he brings on the court - that even if everything goes wrong, it still seems like everything is ideal and it's okay", said the 6-foot-4 Tsitsipas. Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994. "I can only take positives out of this Grand Slam".

"He's got weapons, a big serve and a big forehand", said Djokovic of the world number 40. It is the first time in Wimbledon history not one of the top 10 women's seeds have reached the quarterfinals.

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. He said: "I told my team the other day that for me also, after all these years, it is surprising to be the No 1 seed, in the top two in the rankings at 36".

Serena Williams has won the second set to level her Wimbledon quarterfinal with Camila Giorgi.

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. And none has lost a set in the tournament. I remember because the court was, like, there was no grass any more.

Nadal has made the quarter-finals for the first time since finishing runner-up to Djokovic in 2011.

However, chief executive Richard Lewis confirmed earlier Monday there were no plans to move the men's final and that both the World Cup semifinals and final would not be shown on any big screen, as has been the club's policy since the beginning of the tournament.

She took advantage of the 14th-seeded Kasatkina's 31 unforced errors, including seven double-faults. Isner, 33, has not been broken in 74 service games while Raonic has dropped serve just three times in 72 games. Also Simona Halep's conqueror, Su-Wei Hsieh, was defeated 6-4 6-1 by Dominika Cibulkova.

Yet Federer quickly snuffed out the danger and broke in the next game before rounding off the match in typically ruthless fashion. You're talking about Federer, who has won 20 of these grand slams.

Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro earned himself a chance to set the record straight against Rafael Nadal after sealing a place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday.

Like a vintage Rolls Royce, Federer cruised into the last eight for a mind-boggling 16th time with another imperious centre court display at The All England Club.
