Like Nadal, who could strike Djokovic in the semis, Federer hasn't dropped during his charge to a 16th Wimbledon quarter-final, nearly surely a staggering record that will never be surpassed.

Roger Federer is surprising even himself with his latest record-setting run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals. I'm a big player, big serve.

Julia Goerges advanced to her first Wimbledon semifinal with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens.

Twelve months ago, his last-16 match with Adrian Mannarino, also scheduled for Court One, was cancelled despite Centre Court with its retractable roof being available.

The ICC shared an image of the Test rankings for batsmen which showed the 20-time Grand Slam victor as the number one batsman in the world.

Federer's progress through the draw has been smooth and serene, not dropping a set nor losing a service game on his way to an Open era record 53rd Grand Slam quarter-final.

Isner has a higher percentage of landing first serves than anyone else, while only Federer has won more points on his first serve than Raonic.

Federer won his eighth title at the All England Club in 2017 and has played four consecutive games on Centre Court this year.

With England still in contention to reach the final in Moscow, it has been suggested the football tournament could prove a significant distraction as fans at Wimbledon try to keep up with events in the Russian capital. It took until the 10th game for the next break point to arrive - but Vesely saved the match point with an ace.

The 52nd-ranked Giorgi of Italy took the first set 6-3. Centre Court was always an option.

Giorgi overpowered Williams in the first set, hitting more winners and aces.

Djokovic has played twice on the 11,000-capacity Court One this year but was shunted off to the 4,000-seater Court Two for his second round clash against Horacio Zeballos. Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Nadal beat Jiri Vesley 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 in the last-16 this afternoon to set up a quarter-final showdown with either Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

The 2009 U.S. Open champion reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2013, but four wrist surgeries - three on the left - nearly made him retire.

Nadal hasn't made the Wimbledon quarterfinals since his finals appearance in 2011.
