Wimbledon 2018: Unstoppable Roger Federer wins set in 16 minutes

Wimbledon set for 'Manic Monday' as 4th round starts

Roger Federer returns the ball to France's Adrian Mannarino.

He eventually finished off world number 53 Simon in the match's third tiebreak to move into his second Wimbledon quarter-final where twice champion Nadal is waiting.

Hey guys, a bit of a quick post here as I just haven't had a chance to do my usual post as I've been on the road all day.

Meanwhile, Nadal will face off against Juan Martin del Potro; Federer will play Kevin Anderson and Djokovic will play Kei Nishikori.

Juan Martin del Potro says he is proud to be playing in the same era as Rafael Nadal, but that burning admiration won't prevent him from trying to derail the Spaniard's Wimbledon campaign on Wednesday.

Kevin Anderson also advanced to his first Wimbledon quarterfinal. He will face Djokovic next in his first quarterfinals appearance at the All England Club. You're talking about Federer, who has won 20 of these grand slams.

The Serb, understandably miffed, revealed: "I heard that the organisers were planning to cancel my match if [Gaël] Monfils and Anderson went to a fifth [it was concluded in Anderson's favour]". The seventh-seeded player was defeated by Kiki Bertens 6-3 7-6. Otherwise, we're going to be in a repeat of the 2008 final when Federer played Rafael Nadal.' Speaking on BBC, Henman added: 'Everybody is different and he [Nadal] is strong and very intense. It took until the 10th game for the next break point to arrive - but Vesely saved the match point with an ace. It shouldn't be a shock, and, "Oh, my God, I can't believe it, I lost a set".

Clearly dejected, Mannarino said afterward that he wasn't rattled by the Centre Court spotlight or the size of the crowd.

Giorgi overpowered Williams in the first set, hitting more winners and aces. Alternatively, you can courageous the famous Wimbledon Queue!

Djokovic has not won a Slam for two years after battles with an elbow problem and his progress to the quarter-finals has largely gone under the radar.

She took advantage of the 14th-seeded Kasatkina's 31 unforced errors, including seven double-faults.

Like his great rival Federer, Nadal has cruised through to the last eight without dropping a set.

The 2009 U.S. Open champion reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2013, but four wrist surgeries - three on the left - nearly made him retire.

The women's quarterfinals are underway at Wimbledon.

(11) Angelique Kerber bt. "In 2017 I played well, 2018 I am playing well".

The only remaining fourth-round match has also resumed on No. 2 Court. It's an honour to play Serena.

On Tuesday, there was a surprise for those who love both cricket and tennis as Roger Federer was unveiled as the world's best Test batsman by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

In the men's draw, world No.2 Federer was similarly in ruthless form, dismantling Adrian Mannarino 6-0 7-5 6-4.

Whether it was a forward defensive shot or a back-foot cut, the eight-time champion's technique impressed the International Cricket Council.

Scheduled last on No. 1 Court, Djokovic and Khachanov did not get underway until after 19:00 local time at the All England Club on Monday.

"That sometimes there is a set like this against a player who is not the biggest server, it can happen".

Williams is seeking to reclaim the title having been unable to defend her 2016 triumph due to her pregnancy.

"Doesn't matter if he miss or not", said Del Potro.
