Roger Federer cruised into yet another Wimbledon quarter-final with one of the most straightforward wins of his career on Monday.

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

The eight-time champion lost just five points in a 16-minute first set but faced break points for the first time in this year's tournament, saving all four.

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

"You always tend to play better against better players and I am happy to be back in the second week of Wimbledon".

The 22nd seed, humbled by the opening-set bagel, did manage to put up a much sterner challenge in the second, taking it to 5-5.

Del Potro was leading Simon two sets to one - 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 - when their fourth-round match was suspended under fading light.

Three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe said it was a "privilege" to still be able to see the Swiss marvel strut his stuff on tennis's most famous centre court and, a month shy of his 37th birthday, Federer said he could barely believe it either.

The world number two has also now not dropped serve since the semi-finals previous year.




It's clearly not the first time Federer has honed his skills with a cricket bat.

The top-ranked Spaniard beat Jiri Vesely, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4, on Centre Court to return to the last eight for the first time since he was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2011.

The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis.

The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995.

Defending champion Federer will be playing in his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final and 53rd at all Grand Slams.

After seven years of struggles, Rafael Nadal is finally looking like a contender again at Wimbledon. Also Simona Halep's conqueror, Su-Wei Hsieh, was defeated 6-4 6-1 by Dominika Cibulkova. I am excited. It will be a good result for me.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs.

Nadal hit 37 winners to only 12 unforced errors and erased the only break he allowed by breaking back immediately in the third set.

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.
