Roger Federer one win away from recording 100 Wimbledon wins

Roger Federer one win away from recording 100 Wimbledon wins”

Eight-time champion Federer, 37, meets Italian 17th seed Matteo Berrettini on Centre Court after British number one Johanna Konta's match, while defending champion Djokovic, 32, faces France's Ugo Humbert last on Court One.

Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal - The vanquishing trio finish top of the line to make it to the last 8 in the knock - out stage at the quarter finals.

In the quarterfinal, 18-time Grand Slam champion Nadal will face USA world number 69 Sam Querrey, who beat countryman Tennys Sandgren in four sets on Monday. I know there going to be a day that they going to be in front of us because they will play better than us or because we are leaving, we are not kids any more. "It's not like we're coming in with an empty tank into the second week", said Federer, an eight-time champion at Wimbledon. Everyone loves the excitement of a new name crashing the party, which is why 15-year-old Coco Gauff was so popular.

And the way they made it through the fourth round, dropping a combined total of 19 games across their three victories, served as simply the latest reminder of the gulf between them and everyone else.

"I'm really getting into a good groove now". He has converted 49% of his break chances so far, 19 of 39, which is second-best to Federer among the quarterfinalists. Nishikori defeated the great Swiss in the ATP Finals last year, ending a drought which had stretched to nearly five years.

At this year's tournament, he has fired 100 aces, been broken just once, winning 71 of 72 service games.

They also want to get a glimpse of the holy trinity - Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

"I like playing on the grass", said 6-foot-6 (1.97m) Querrey, who is in a third quarter-final at Wimbledon.

When will the Wimbledon men's singles quarter-finals take place?

In addition to No. 3 seed Nadal vs. Querrey, the other matchups Wednesday are No. 1 Djokovic vs.

Five others have had their moment in the sun by hoisting a Grand Slam trophy, but all failed to manage a second title. I have played him three or four times and never been close.

"When he plays well, he can be very, very risky on all surfaces", said Nadal, whose recent 12th French Open title took him to 18 majors, just two back from Federer's record.

Nishikori trails Federer 7-3 head-to-head but, like Querrey against Nadal, also enjoyed success last up against the mighty Swiss, in the ATP Finals in London in November.

"I think the experience we have helps confidence, everything that we have achieved in our careers obviously we carry onto the court, then most of the players feel that, feel pressure".
