Nadal, whose 17 Grand Slam titles are eclipsed by Federer's 20 and the 23 owned by Williams, did not disappoint in the late afternoon sunshine as he dissected fellow left-hander Vesely with a typically rumbustious display.

Federer was first on Centre Court on Monday for what is known as Wimbledon's "Manic Monday", in which all 32 remaining singles players vie for a place in the quarterfinals.

Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last-eight when he tackles Kevin Anderson, the eighth-seeded South African. "It was dark so I couldn't see the ball that well and it was very windy". "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".

"You can't plan for them anyway".

In a sense, it is one more bullet point that belongs on the list of Federer's contributions to tennis when he retires: 20 Grand Slam titles (and counting); eight Wimbledon titles (and counting); and unofficial coach and mentor to the next generation that both reveres and hopes to supplant him one day, as he did Sampras almost two decades ago.

And all on a surgically-repaired knee. "I feel like the more experienced you are, the more you can deal with those better". We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament.

The reigning champion's straight-set win means he has now won his last 32 consecutive sets on the surface and is three set wins away from breaking his previous record of 34, which he accomplished between 2005 and 2006.

The Russian, 21, won her first title a year ago and reached the French Open quarter-finals last month. Del Potro was leading Simon two sets to one when their match was suspended because of darkness Monday night.

England's footballers play in their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 when they face Croatia on Wednesday, and supporters will be at fever pitch if they win to reach their first final since 1966.

The win also allowed Isner, the highest-ranked USA man, to have something about Wimbledon to relish other than his victory in the longest match in tennis history: 70-68 in the fifth set against Nicolas Mahut after 11 hours spread over three days in 2010. Is true has been a while since I have been in that position.

"Today was a special day, played a good match and had the chance to catch up with the great indian cricket star Sachin Tendulkar", read a caption on the Federer's Facebook.

According to Gracenote, he is five behind Nadal's 37 sets in succession at the French Open - a sequence that ran from 2016 until the opening set of his quarter-final against Argentina's Diego Schwartzman in June. That, of course, is a positive result. In 2012, 2013, I was not able to compete. "When you watch Federer, it's like the best thing on television".

Nadal has made the quarter-finals for the first time since finishing runner-up to Djokovic in 2011.

Isner added another 22 aces to his tournament-topping tally that now stands at 135 after the ninth seed's 6-4 7-6 (10-8) 7-6 (7-5) triumph over young Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Nadal reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 after defeating Jiri Vesely in a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 victory on Monday.

No. 24 Kei Nishikori avoided an upset, winning 4-6, 7-5 (5), 7-6 (10), 6-1 over unseeded Ernests Gulbis of Latvia.
