Federer, Nadal, Nishikori, Serena Williams advance to Wimbledon quarterfinals

Federer, Nadal, Nishikori, Serena Williams advance to Wimbledon quarterfinals

The 31-year-old achieved his career-best result at The All England this year as he made the last-16 at Wimbledon for the first time in his career.

Federer fired another warning to his title rivals in another very complete performance.

Federer came out firing in the opener and subsequently dismantled Mannarino in a bagel set that lasted just 16 minutes.

Del Potro saved two break points in the sixth game, a deft chip from the baseline that dipped over the net followed by a forehand victor, before taking the opening set in a 7-1 tiebreak.

However, the Frenchman did manage to earn a break point - the first Federer had faced in the tournament - as his opponent served for the set and then dug deep to stay with the Swiss in the second.

Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last-eight. He's notoriously had trouble on grass in recent years, but he long ago proved he can play on the turf, reaching five straight finals and winning two from 2006-2011.

The world number one faces Czech world number 93 Jiri Vesely, who has never got past the fourth round of a Grand Slam.

Should No. 103 Mackenzie McDonald defeat former runner-up Milos Raonic later Monday, it will be the first time since 2000 that two men outside the top 100 have made the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Eden Hazard still 'dreaming' of Real Madrid
Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the tournament after accepting the Madrid job, with Fernando Hierro taking charge. He may be 33 and a World Cup triumph may now be beyond his reach but Cristiano Ronaldo is far from finished.

DoD Personnel Assist in Thai Cave Rescue Operations
Narongsak Osottanakorn, head of the rescue operation, said a team of divers went back into the cave Monday morning, local time. Narongsak says they are "safe" but no other details are given about their conditions. "Four boys were brought out today ".

Donald Trump's Former Driver, Noel Cintron, Sues Organization For Unpaid Overtime
Just previous year , a supply company claimed they were never paid for paint that was used to re-paint Trump's luxury golf resort. However, Cintron isn't the first of Trump's employees to sue him over the years, claiming that he failed to pay them.

Bertens, who ousted Pliskova and Venus Williams in the first round, reached the French Open semi-finals in 2016.

"It was an important victory as since 2011 I have not been in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon".

'I'm looking forward to it and I'm definitely confident that I can keep going'.

"I told my team the other day that for me also, after all these years, it is surprising to be the No.1 seed, in the top-two rankings at 36", he said. Depends against who you play you have less or more chances to win.

Novak Djokovic is Nishikori's next challenge after the three-time champion thumped Russian Karen Khachanov 6-4 6-2 6-2 in an ominous display.

As the grass rested on a murderously hot Sunday, numerous 16 contenders left standing after a week of minor carnage prepared for a charge at the final weekend suspecting - but never admitting - that the winner's name is likely to be the one that has already been engraved on the trophy eight times.

Nadal is in the hunt for his first championship in England since 2010, when he defeated Tomas Berdych to win the title.

"You can't plan for them anyway because one point can change the outcome of a set. Luckily for me it didn't happen", Djokovic said after he romped to a 6-4 6-2 6-2 win to reach the last eight for a 10th time. "I guess there are other factors that play in".

All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis, meanwhile, says Wimbledon organisers will not alter the schedule to accommodate a potential England final appearance.
