Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer cruises into last eight

TENNIS-GBR-WIMBLEDON

Defending champion Roger Federer, who is more than likely to be playing in Sunday's final, even joked that maybe the World Cup final should move to accommodate the Wimbledon title match.

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

With the men's final slated for its traditional time of 2 p.m. BST (9 a.m. ET) and the World Cup final kicking off at 4 p.m. BST (11 a.m. ET) in Moscow, the All England Club is facing pressure to reschedule the Championship match to accommodate, particularly if England wins its semifinal against Croatia Wednesday and reaches its first final since 1966.

He has won 32 sets in a row at Wimbledon - two short of his personal best streak, between 2005's third round and the 2006 final. "After that, I feel like I got, how do you say, there is a buzz for me".

Since he exited Wimbledon at the first-round stage previous year, Anderson has enjoyed a solid return, making four finals, including his deep run at the US Open where he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal. We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament.

The victor of that clash will take on Kei Nishikori, who overcame a right arm injury to reach his first Wimbledon quarter-final with a gritty 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (12/10), 6-1 win over Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis. His problem has always been the first week of Wimbledon, not the second week.

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

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

Whatsapp launches ad campaign to tackle fake news
In the ad Whatsapp says that technology companies, the government, and community groups must come together to fight fake news. This causes rumors to spread, and can cause law and order problems as was recently reported regarding the mob lynchings .

Stefanos Tsitsipas was just 2 years old when Roger Federer, then a ponytailed 19-year-old with balletic grace, famously announced himself to the tennis world at Wimbledon in 2001 by toppling seven-time champion Pete Sampras in the fourth round.

Cibulkova went on to advance to a third Wimbledon quarterfinal, following 2011 and 2016. "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great".

Pliskova, who is the top seed remaining in the women's tournament, should be seen as Williams' top threat to reach the final since she beat the American once in a major at the 2016 U.S. Open, which was won by Kerber.

Both Anderson of South Africa and the 44th-ranked Monfils of France were bidding to reach the quarterfinals for the first time on their 10th appearance at the All England Club.

The 22nd seed, humbled by the opening-set bagel, did manage to put up a much sterner challenge in the second, taking it to 5-5. "I'm going to have to really take it to him".

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.

In her third Wimbledon quarterfinal, Cibulkova faces former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

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