Rafael Nadal has joined Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, raising hopes of another titanic title decider a decade after the duo's so-called match of the century.

It will be Djokovic's 41st appearance in a Grand Slam quarterfinal and he will start favorite against Nishikori who will be in his first last-eight at the All England Club.

Federer took his tally of consecutive sets won on London's hallowed lawns to 32 with a 6-0 7-5 6-4 dispatch of unsafe French left-hander Adrian Mannarino.

Mannarino won only two points in the first five games and the opening set was brought to an end inside just 16 minutes.

He will play South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson or France's Gael Monfils in the last eight on Wednesday.

"I've often said the day that you don't feel nervous is the day you should be more anxious about". "You can't plan for them anyway because one point can change the outcome of a set". I lost in the fourth round against a player I can lose to (Nick Kyrgios), 2015 was a very bad year for me, not on grass, on most of the surfaces.

When he lost his 2016 semi-final to Milos Raonic, Federer feared his career may be over after seriously injuring his knee in an on-court tumble.

Should Federer continue his relentless march towards a 21st grand slam crown, and ninth at Wimbledon, he is destined to meet a serving monster in the last four.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee.

The billionaire entrepreneur said this would create an underwater air tunnel with the ability to "auto-conform to odd shapes". The plan will most likely involve the drilling, ground-penetrating Radar and water-pumping expertise of The Boring Company .


The Latvian player also reached the quarterfinals past year in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams. That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for the season and to save energy for the rest of the tournament. Rafa winning, he was on the floor, all the flashes.

"It was important for me to stay focused". Is true has been a while since I have been in that position.

Williams raced into her 13th Wimbledon quarterfinal as the seven-time champion thrashed Rodina 6-2, 6-2 in a Centre Court masterclass.

"I am just enjoying every single today I play here".

The road to recovery following elbow surgery has been rocky for Djokovic, but there were signs of a revival during the clay-court season, which included a run to the French Open quarter-finals, while this rebirth was all-but confirmed with his display at Queen's last month. That, of course, is a positive result. In 2012, 2013, I was not able to compete. "When you watch Federer, it's like the best thing on television".

Juan Martin del Potro set up a Wimbledon quarter-final clash against Rafael Nadal when he downed Gilles Simon of France 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 7-6 (7/5) on Tuesday.

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. We are talking about me being in the quarter-finals.

"Certainly I'd love to have Trump come watch me", Isner said after beating the Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round.
