Guitar man Kevin Anderson wants rhythm not blues against Roger Federer

Alex de Minaur 'I like Rafael Nadal but I am a Roger Federer fan' Has Rahul Dravid been coaching Roger Federer secretly? Wimbledon asks ICC to rate Swiss maestro's forward defence

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

Defending champion Roger Federer sauntered into the Wimbledon quarterfinals with a dominant display Monday, beating Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4.

It will be Djokovic's 41st appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final and he will start favourite against Nishikori, who will be in his first last-eight at the All England Club.

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

The cricketing body also made a decision to indulge in some banter and quickly responded to Wimbledon's Twitter handle about ranking Federer as the number one Test batsmen in the world.

Nadal, like Federer yet to drop a set, routed world number 93 Vesely on the eve of the Czech player's 25th birthday.

For that matter, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli too has followed Federer's philosophy of not heeding much to what critics say and do what they deem best for themselves.

Was Mannarino intimidated by playing in that hallowed arena? He was gifted a first-week stroll as pleasant as a walk on Wimbledon Common and begins the fourth round on Centre Court at 1pm against Adrian Mannarino.

"It was crucial for him to stay in the match at the beginning of the second set and then it got tougher", said 20-time major victor Federer.

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. It has been a very positive four matches for me - I didn't play on grass for a year - so I try to keep focus, that is the main thing'. Federer also broke, then held to end the match.

Asked if he expected more from an opponent in the world's top 30, Federer said: "I think it's a tough matchup for him maybe against me".

Angelique Kerber is not exactly a new face. No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko vs. Dominika Cibulkova, and No. 13 Julia Goerges vs.

"I mean, I'm definitely going to have to look at it the right way".

"I am just enjoying every single today I play here".

"I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".

"Isner v Raonic I haven't even put that in as an option".

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.

The 32-year-old also became the first South African man into the last eight at the All England Club since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Three times he was scheduled last on court, putting him at risk of falling victim to fading light with the burden of having to return the following day.
