Federer, Serena Williams sweep into Wimbledon quarterfinals

Federer, Serena Williams sweep into Wimbledon quarterfinals”

This exchange was made possible after Roger Federer took to channelling his inner Sachin Tendulkar while playing his Round of 16 match on Centre Court at the All England Club on "Manic" Monday.

During his Wimbledon fourth-round victory over Adrian Mannarino on Monday, with the ball having already been called out, Federer played a stroke that was more akin to cricket than tennis.

Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic all advanced at Wimbledon on Monday.

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.

His opponent on Wednesday is eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson, the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1994 to get to the last eight.

And even if this didn't work out for Wimbledon, it would pay off for my second priority, would be the US Open, so it's more to do with the rest of the season and the next season.' What does he do in such long breaks from tennis? 'I train extremely hard on my fitness.

Mannarino put up much more of a fight in the second set, which appeared to be heading towards a tie-break until the 36-year-old Swiss broke in the 11th game, and then successfully served it out. A tip of the hat to those who recall the boys' winners from 2001-2003 (Roman Valent, Todd Reid and Florin Mergea) and a standing ovation to anyone who knows how they are passing their time these days. He edged Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4), to whom he held a 0-5 head-to-head record entering the match. Like a year ago, I received the information that they can't reschedule my match on the other court because of the tickets that are presold.

Shapovalov's Wimbledon ended in the second round. Federer vs Anderson, Anderson is a good player but it's not as good a match.

Big-serving American John Isner continues to prosper in London's scorching conditions by making it through to the quarter finals for the first time in SW19. And Williams was followed by Rafael Nadal - two titles at Wimbledon, 17 at all Slams - who dispatched 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

Kei Nishikori - Nick Kyrgios's third-round vanquisher - also marched through, the Japanese superstar stopping fatiguing Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to make his first Wimbledon quarter final.

The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995. "It never happened to me in my career", Cibulkova fumed. I think people can see that and can feel that.

Beaten by Serena in the 2016 final, Kerber takes on Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, a 6-7 (6/8), 6-3, 6-2 victor against Belgian world number 47 Alison Van Uytvanck.
