Federer cruises into his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on", Federer joked with the media Monday after he advanced to the quarterfinals at the London Grand Slam for the 16th time in his career.

Roger Federer, who has yet to lose a set during this tournament, celebrates his 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

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

Sixteen minutes, one unforced error, all six games won and just five points dropped in the second-quickest set he has ever played at the All England Club.

"I didn't miss much so I was very happy with the match", the eight-times champion said after booking a last-eight date with South African Kevin Anderson.

"I think it's a pretty exciting opportunity to play Federer here at Wimbledon", Anderson, who has served 96 aces in four rounds, told reporters.

Ostapenko, the 2017 French Open champion, lost her first two service games and went 5-2 down in the opening set before rallying to force a tiebreaker against her Belarussian opponent. I am not saying I am not excited to play against Roger in the final. He edged Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4), to whom he held a 0-5 head-to-head record entering the match. She has gone past the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012.

"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. His only other quarterfinals appearance was at the 2011 US Open. The second seed defeated Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court.

Twelve months on and he fancies his chances of reaching the semi-finals having declared himself "physically (and) mentally ready (and) fit" to face Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori.

He'd never even been past the third round at the grass-court Grand Slam until this year. "That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for to save energy for the rest of the tournament".

An eight-time victor of the men's singles at the All England Club, Federer was an overwhelming favorite against the 22nd seed and never looked like falling victim to a huge upset. She plays Kiki Bertens first-up on No 2 Court, the victor advancing to the quarter-finals against either Julia Görges or Donna Vekic.

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.

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