Weathering Kyrgios' thunderbolt serve with incredible mobility, Nishikori completed a miserable day for Australia with all five singles players departing.

Federer opened play on Centre Court and after just 16 minutes, he was already up a set on Adrian Mannarino.

Kerber stormed into the lead in a quick first set by breaking Osaka's initial serve and holding her own to love, followed by another break shortly afterward.

"I was trying to loosen up, I was pretty uptight", said Kyrgios.

"It was important for me to keep focus".

"I haven't spent too much time on the court". I think that's his motivation, for sure.

Nishikori's win, which came at the 10th attempt, made him the first Japanese since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995 to secure a quarterfinal berth at the All England Club. I'll do the best I can to prepare myself for the hard courts now, ' added Zverev, who will play Washington in late July next.

Latvia's 12th seed Jelena Ostapenko needed just 62 minutes to put away Russia's Vitalia Diatchenko in a 6-0 6-4 victory.

"Right now I need to recover". I think it's going to be a new game for us. But other than a grabbing a quick break in the third, Nadal rolled to a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

"I guess I'm in kind of, like, a happy place". "But when I came here, I came here thinking that I could produce a good result".

Gulbis will meet Nishikori on Tuesday (AEST), while Juan Martin Del Potro, Milos Raonic, Karen Khachanov, Gilles Simon and Jiri Vesely are also through to the last 16. The two had battled for over 3:15.

The match wasn't without the usual show of outbursts from the fiery player either.

"I felt great this morning but as soon as I got out there, I just didn't feel good", he told reporters. He's got weapons, he's got a big first serve, he's got a big forehand, but I managed to get a lot of first serves back in play, make him play always an extra shot.

"I was struggling. I didn't serve well".

"It was really hard conditions to play on". "He has a very particular and fast style of hitting the ball".

He moves on to meet Kei Nishikori. "What's going on? - England, it's coming home or not?" asked the sweat-drenched Spaniard with a grin moments after handing baby-faced Australian Alex de Minaur a 6-1 6-2 6-4 roasting. He first beat Briton Jay Clarke 4-6 6-3 7-6 3-6 6-4. The 27-year-old Canadian, who was runner-up to Andy Murray in 2016, triumphed 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2.

Tomorrow, the men have the day off with the exception of Delpo-Simon.
