Wimbledon 2018 -- Roger Federer cruises into quarterfinals

Tomorrow, Federer will have the chance to break his own Wimbledon record of 34, recorded between...

They clapped and yelled when Federer's drop volley capped a 16-minute tour de force of a first set in which he won 21 of the first 23 points. "It was dark so I couldn't see the ball that well and it was very windy".

Many are already anticipating a Sunday final between Federer and Nadal, 10 years after their 2008 epic championship showdown widely regarded as the greatest final ever played.

"You can't plan for them anyway". In 2017, in a video interview with Wimbledon, Tendulkar said that he has been following the Swiss maestro for the last 10 years and spoke about how he admires Federer as a person because he is humble and kind.

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.

Defending champion Federer will be playing in his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final and 53rd at all Grand Slams.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee.

"But if you ask me if I prefer another one, I say yes". (In) 2014, I played a good tournament.

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.

The match between No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon was suspended due to darkness and will resume Tuesday at 8 a.m. ET.

With England still in contention to reach the final in Moscow, it has been suggested the football tournament could prove a significant distraction as fans at Wimbledon try to keep up with events in the Russian capital.

"I think it's a pretty exciting opportunity to play Federer here at Wimbledon", Anderson, who has served 96 aces in four rounds, told reporters. It is true that it has been a while since I have been in that position.

"I feel they will go for Djokovic this time". When I'm doing that, I think I'm a very unsafe player. 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".

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.

After seven years of struggles, Rafael Nadal is finally looking like a contender again at Wimbledon.

Jiri Vesely went the same way as Nadal's three previous opponents in being dispatched in straight sets and given the Spaniard exited at this stage past year in an epic with Gilles Muller that should not be underestimated.

Djokovic, seeded 12th, won easily over Russia's Karen Khachanov, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.
