Roger, Serena, Rafa bring best to Wimbledon's Centre Court

Alex de Minaur 'I like Rafael Nadal but I am a Roger Federer fan'

He swept through the opening set in just 16 minutes, dropping just five points, before shifting down a gear to conserve petrol for what he expects to be a more arduous second week of the championships.

"Maybe you should ask the questions over in Russian Federation, how they're going to feel about Wimbledon being played at the same time, so..."

The legendary Sachin Tendulkar has invited Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer to a session of exchanging notes on cricket after he wins his 9th Wimbledon title. "Luckily for me it didn't happen", he said of the tie which preceded his clash with Khachanov.

"You can't plan for them anyway".

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.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee.

Current members of the Trump administration have also faced public shame recently. Bannon , a native of the Virginia capital, often frequents the store.

"Raonic is a danger man in that section with that serve - good luck to anybody with that - and he beat Federer last time when he got to the final".

"I didn't think that was ever going to happen, to be honest."

On Wednesday, Federer will play No. 8 Kevin Anderson, a South African who was the 2017 U.S. Open runner-up and advanced with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4) victory over Gael Monfils.

The Russian, 21, won her first title past year and reached the French Open quarter-finals last month.

Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion, will face either Juan Martin del Potro, the fifth seed from Argentina, or unseeded Gilles Simon of France for a place in the semifinals. "The only different thing", he said, "is that it's Federer in front of me". Is true has been a while since I have been in that position.

"If he's in the final, I am excited to play Roger", he said. That, of course, is a positive result. I was just very happy that I was able to protect my serve, find a way to break, create opportunities. "Sometimes the things works better, sometimes worse".

Federer qualifies for Wimbledon quarter-finals without dropping a set
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". The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995.

Nadal continued the trend of straightforward wins when he took to the court against Vesely.

Del Potro was leading Simon two sets to one - 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 - when their fourth-round match was suspended under fading light.

The 19-year-old 31st seed has already put in his best performance at a Slam and is bidding to prevent Isner, 14 year his senior, making the quarter-finals for the first time.

And though his Wimbledon debut ended there Monday, when he ran into the big serve and arrhythmic game of the 6-foot-10 John Isner, Tsitsipas said he was pleased to have achieved his goal.

The world number one looked impressive in overcoming Jiri Vesely 6-3 6-3 6-4.

Later Monday, two-time champion Rafael Nadal attempts to make the quarter-finals for the first time since he finished runner-up in 2011.

It's also the only Grand Slam tournament in the half-century professional era with zero top-10 seeds in the women's final eight. It was Serena's 18th straight win at the All England Club as the 23-time Grand Slam champion reached her 13th quarter-final.

"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.
