Wimbledon 2018 -- Roger Federer cruises into quarterfinals

Wimbledon- Monday Schedule Federer Nadal Djokovic Williams to play

Wimbledon was quick to notice and in a tongue-in-cheek tweet, they asked ICC to rate Federer's shot.

The eight-time champion earned his latest win with maximum efficiency on Center Court, particularly during a 16-minute first set, where the top-seeded Federer lost just five points.

Mercifully the set flashed by in 16 breathtaking minutes as Federer whizzed into the quarter-finals with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win.

"Not really", said Federer, the No. 1 seed.

His mastery was only the beginning of things for those who spent 120 pounds (about $160) to be at Center Court and were afforded the rare treat of watching three of the greatest to ever lift a tennis racket.

Bertens, who ousted Pliskova and Venus Williams in the first round, reached the French Open semi-finals in 2016. The second seed defeated Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court. Along with his 44 winners (to Mannarino's 18), all are hallmarks of a player in full command. On a day when the British government cabinet was collapsing, two lefties duked it out on Centre Court with punishing groundstrokes. "He could have won that second set and the match would have been different", Federer admitted speaking about his opponent.

He showed up wearing a plain white T-shirt, bereft of any obvious sponsor's logos, looking like someone out for a casual hitting session in a public park. And he watched it again and again, taking note of Federer's quickness, net game, serve, variety of tactics and, above all, his composure. Federer also broke, then held to end the match.

"Of course this is an important result for me", he said.

American ninth seed John Isner also reached his first Wimbledon quarter-final with a 6-4, 7-6 (10/8), 7-6 (7/4) win over Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas. "For me, there's so much farther I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that". "I didn't play on grass for a whole year", Nadal said. "These are the matches we work so hard for, me and my whole team".

Belgium assistant coach Thierry Henry in the 'wrong camp', says Giroud
France have the luxury of having a fully fit side and Blaise Matuidi is back from suspension after missing out against Uruguay. The FC Barcelona centre-back has a knee injury, and his availability will depend on a fitness test closer to kick-off.

Isner will face fellow big server Milos Raonic next and expects a tough match against the Canadian.

On No. 1 Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic faces Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation.

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.

Since seeds were introduced in the 1920s, it's the first time none of the top-10 have reached the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

For Nadal, this marks a return.

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

"It's true, it has been a while", Nadal said.

"Someone's going to get angry at him for doing this", the announcers commented after the point.
