That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for the season and to save energy for the rest of the tournament.

After his first-round victory last week, the 25th-ranked Shapovalov credited his improvement on grass, in part, to the Swiss, explaining: "I've been trying to watch a lot of Roger - how he plays on the grass, how he comes in, chips, how he bothers players on the surface". The other one-sided match of the day was Nadal vs. Vesely and it just didn't compare, of course, it's down to personal preference but both guys took far too long between points and it never really had any wow moments.

The fifth-seeded del Potro failed to convert four match points when serving at 5-4 in the fourth set, but maintained his composure to close out the contest with his first opportunity in the tiebreaker that followed.

Like Federer, who earlier beat Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4, Nadal is through to the last eight without dropping a set. Milos Raonic is playing up to his No. 13 seed, and he'll go up against American John Isner.

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

By contrast, Federer and Nadal have played exclusively on the 15,000-seater Centre Court.

"He started to play better from the baseline and I made a couple of mistakes with the game I lost with my serve". "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?"

"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.

Tim Henman believes that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will be extremely tough to beat at Wimbledon.

Anderson, who reached his first Grand Slam final at the 2017 US Open, had lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon on three previous occasions.

But he persevered through dark times and is rewarded with his second successive Slam quarter-final - the first time he has done that since reaching the last eight at the Australian Open and Roland Garros in 2012.

"But if you ask me if I prefer another one, I say yes".

But first they have to negotiate their quarter-final matches on Wednesday.

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on".

'Maybe the injury and being away from the sport makes you realise how much you miss it and he certainly looks like he's back to where he wants to be'.

As it stands, the 17-time Grand Slam champion is now on 8,950 points while Federer, who has to win a ninth Wimbledon title to retain the full 2,000 points, is now on 8,720.
