Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Roger Federer

Defending champion Roger Federer sauntered into the Wimbledon quarterfinals with a dominant display Monday, beating Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4.

The eight-time champion earned his latest win with maximum efficiency on Centre Court, particularly during a 16-minute first set, where the top-seeded Federer lost just five points. That was the day also I think Spain became European champion in soccer, and Rafa won his first Wimbledon.' The Spaniard Garbine Muguruza, who was 14, stated: 'I remember it was very dark.

Mannarino steadied himself in the second set to postpone the inevitable, but Federer pulled away for a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory. "You can't plan for them anyway because one point can change the outcome of a set".

Djokovic had told reporters that he had been hopeful of playing his quarter-final match on Centre Court before telling Serbian media that he "deserved" the honour and meant to lobby the All England Club.

Roland Garros remains his last Grand Slam victory - just one final has followed, as well as six exits in the quarter-finals or earlier.

Her next opponent will be Camila Giorgi, who is into her first Grand Slam quarterfinals after defeating Ekaterina Makarova 6-3 6-4.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee. "It never happened to me in my career", Cibulkova fumed.

Federer plays Anderson on Wednesday after the eighth seed edged flamboyant Frenchman Gael Monfils 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-2) 5-7 7-6 (7-4) in one of the matches of the championship.

On Wednesday on Centre Court, he will start as underdog against Nadal, the 17-time major victor who is in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 when he went on to finish runner-up.

But he is hoping to return and win over the All England Club faithful. I am just focused on what I am doing today. Is true has been a while since I have been in that position. "I know a lot of people won't like that but I don't care". I'm a big player, big serve.

"If he's in the final, I am excited to play Roger", he said. That, of course, is a positive result.

"The expectations he's had to deal with for over a decade, 15 years, I mean, at the top of the game, he's able to deal with it so well, which isn't easy". "When you watch Federer, it's like the best thing on television".

The Argentine, who leads the stubborn baseliner 4-3 in previous encounters, levelled on his second break point and it went to 5-5, but Simon broke again to take the first set off Del Potro in the tournament so far.

Federer has been relegated to Court 1 for the first time since he took on Gilles Simon in the last eight in 2015.

Isner added another 22 aces to his tournament-topping tally that now stands at 135 after the ninth seed's 6-4 7-6 (10-8) 7-6 (7-5) triumph over young Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas.

But the All England Club opted to put Novak Djokovic's match against Kei Nishikori and Rafael Nadal's meeting with Juan Martin del Potro on Centre Court for Wednesday.

Rafael Nadal is in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011.

Despite being a three-time champion, Djokovic has featured just once on Centre Court - against British home favourite Kyle Edmund in the last 32 - in the opening four rounds.
