Nadal, Federer ease into Wimbledon quarter-finals

Djokovic won the last of his Wimbledon titles in 2015

Monday's win took Nadal, 32, into a 35th Grand Slam quarter-final.

The eight-time champion competed with great tenacity and was a continual menace to French number 22 seed Adrian Mannarino in a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory on Centre Court.

Rafael Nadal has breezed into his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2011.

The trio have all won at least two Wimbledon titles but Rusedski believes Federer will come out on top once again.

Federer served out the match with an ace out wide, winning in one hour and 45 minutes. Federer, meanwhile, has a clearer path, with no major champions standing between him and the final. "Maybe you should ask the questions over in Russian Federation, how they're going to feel about Wimbledon being played at the same time". Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994. Nadal then plays Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic.

"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.

His next obstacle in his quest for a third Wimbledon title will be either Argentina's fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro or Frenchman Gilles Simon on Wednesday.

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

It's been seven years since Nadal last featured in a final at Wimbledon.

Mr Buckland said there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately". Johnson had resigned , saying the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

It all began with the official Twitter account of Wimbledon posting a video of Federer in action, with him playing what looks like a forward defensive stroke. "It was hard in the last few games".

"I think", Federer said when it was over, "I can be very pleased".

Wherever he ends up playing, Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion, will be favourite to see off Nishikori for a 14th time in 16 meetings.

All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis, meanwhile, says Wimbledon organisers will not alter the schedule to accommodate a potential England final appearance.

The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis. "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".

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.

Elsewhere, Milos Raonic beat Mackenzie McDonald in four sets to reach the quarter-finals for the third year in a row. The 13th seed won all 20 of his service games.

Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko is only 21 but is already a Grand Slam champion, having won the French Open previous year, and she credits ballroom dancing for helping with her footwork. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set, 6-4. "I'm a perfectionist. I always find something wrong", she said.

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