Sweet 16 for Roger Federer at Wimbledon

Sweet 16 for Roger Federer at Wimbledon

Wimbledon organisers have instead given Novak Djokovic the honour of getting the men's quarter-finals underway on the main stage when he takes on Kei Nishikori.

Kevin Anderson advanced to his first Wimbledon quarterfinal after edging Gael Monfils, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, 7-6 (7-4).

Rafael Nadal reached the quarter-finals for the first time in seven years with a comfortable 6-3 6-3 6-4 win over unseeded Czech Jiri Vesely. So, too, is 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Canada. The 13th seed won all 20 of his service games.

Williams is looking for her eighth Wimbledon title and has established herself as the big favorite once again, with the top-10 seeds all eliminated.

It's that time of the year when Tennis fans across the globe hook themselves to their TV sets and can not afford to miss even a second.

The 32-year-old also became the first South African man into the last eight at the All England Club since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Having missed Wimbledon previous year while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal is realistic about who he wants to face should he reach the Wimbledon final this year. "I'm a perfectionist. I always find something wrong".

"It was tougher than the scoreline, " Williams said.

France, Uruguay set date for quarter-finals
Cavani scored both goals in Saturday's 2-1 last-16 victory over Portugal before being forced off with an injury. We know that the squares have been full back home and that the people there were really rooting for us.

Federer returned the compliment saying the interaction with Tendulkar made his day special. As you have already guessed, it's Wimbledon time.

By contrast, eight-time champion Federer, and Nadal, the title victor on two occasions, have played exclusively on the 15,000-seater Centre Court.

It's the first time Isner, 33, has reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals, and it is just his second quarterfinal at a major.

Del Potro was thrashed by the Spaniard in the French Open semi-final last month but feels his game matches up better against the world number one on grass despite losing their only two meetings on the surface.

She beat the ninth-seeded Williams in the third round after coming from a break down in the third set. "I've been in this position and situation before many times". That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for the season and to save energy for the rest of the tournament.

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on".

That left them facing the prospect of their encounter dragging into Tuesday but Djokovic was in no mood to let that happen as he overcame rising star Khachanov in ultimately routine fashion.

Cibulkova went on to advance to a third Wimbledon quarterfinal, following 2011 and 2016. "I probably won't have another 6-0 set this week, so I'll enjoy this one".

Two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber is taking on Russian Daria Kasatkina on Centre Court.
