Nadal back in Wimbledon quarters after 7 years

Nadal back in Wimbledon quarters after 7 years

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. "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?"

Now 36, Federer has since supplanted Sampras as Wimbledon's greatest male champion and appears poised to extend his record eight singles titles at the All England Club, gliding from one round to the next, yet to lose a set or his serve through four rounds of play. That variety and injection of pace made Mannarino so unsure of his game and like I've said many times before Fed's brand of tennis is just so unique.

"You can't plan for them anyway". Federer, meanwhile, has a clearer path, with no major champions standing between him and the final.

When he lost his 2016 semi-final to Milos Raonic, Federer feared his career may be over after seriously injuring his knee in an on-court tumble.

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.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee.

"I am not saying I am not excited to play against Roger in the final", Nadal explained.

The Swiss maestro plays eighth Kevin Anderson, with the South Africa's 2017 Flushing Meadows finalist who is into his first quarter-final on his 10th visit to London's SW19.

Tsitsipas, whose Greek father and Russian mother are both tennis coaches, had set a goal at the beginning of the year of reaching the fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament. "I always had that lead in the bag and then it was important for me to stay focused". It is true that it has been a while since I have been in that position.




"I haven't spent too much time on the court".

The Swiss great has played every match on Centre Court since then, losing in the semifinals in 2016 and winning a record eighth title a year ago.

Khachanov's display was flashy but full of errors, and Djokovic was ruthless in punishing them, coming through 6-4 6-2 6-2 to set up a last-eight meeting with Kei Nishikori. In 2012, 2013, I was not able to compete. "Sometimes the things works better, sometimes worse".

Juan Martin del Potro set up a blockbuster Wimbledon quarter-final showdown against world No 1 Rafa Nadal after defeating Gilles Simon on Tuesday.

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.

Rafael Nadal is in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011.

American ninth seed John Isner also reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-4, 7-6 (10/8), 7-6 (7/4) win over Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Amid all of the chaos in the women's bracket at Wimbledon, the quarterfinal round in the men's bracket boasts a lot of familiar faces.
