Federer qualifies for Wimbledon quarter-finals without dropping a set

Serena Williams and Roger Federer

"So it's an important moment", said Nadal, the 17-time Grand Slam champion who has made four successive quarter-finals at the majors for the first time in six years.

ICC also posted superimposed pictures of Federer and Sachin Tendulkar in Spiderman costumes with a caption, "When greatness recognises greatness".

Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France on Monday.

Big-serving Anderson had never reached the final eight at the All England Club nor had he beaten Gael Monfils, but after a gruelling 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4) triumph over the Frenchman in the fourth round, he can now tick both off his list.

Federer admitted he was surprised by the quick nature of the first set, which kick-started his progress to a 16th Wimbledon quarter-final. That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for the season and to save energy for the rest of the tournament.

India justifies Air India changing Taiwan to "Chinese Taipei"
Taiwan expressed disappointment after national carrier Air India changed "Taiwan" into " Chinese Taipei " on its official website. Under its "One China" policy, Beijing considers Taiwan a province and opposes ties between Taipei and other capitals.

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. Monfils, a former juniors No. 1, won an Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon juniors title. She has gone past the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012.

Next up for Nadal is either Juan Martin del Potro, the fifth seeded Argentine, or unseeded Gilles Simon of France.

"I think nerves is a great thing, it gets your system going", Anderson said. 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.

The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995. He will face Djokovic next in his first quarterfinals appearance at the All England Club.

Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, the highest-seeded woman remaining at No. 7, plays Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

After Federer's first-round victory over Dusan Lajovic, the 36-year-old admitted he still gets nervous before stepping on court despite having 20 major titles to his name.

He has fully-justified his seeding of eight and was mentally rock-solid in winning three tiebreaks against Monfils in his four-set win on Court One. "After she was complaining, they were talking in Chinese, whatever language". "I'm going to have to really take it to him". Like past year, I received the information that they can't reschedule my match on the other court because of the tickets that are presold. No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko vs. Dominika Cibulkova, and No. 13 Julia Goerges vs. "I probably won't have another 6-0 set this week, so I'll enjoy this one".

Angelique Kerber is not exactly a new face.

Daria Kasatkina is one of the emerging talents of the WTA Tour.
