Day Four The Championships- Wimbledon 2018

During Roger Federer's Round of 16 match on Monday against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, the Swiss maestro showed off his cricketing skills in front of the All England Club at the prestigious Centre Court.

Federer produced another near-faultless performance on Centre Court, outclassing France's Adrian Mannarino 6-0 7-5 6-4 to reach the last eight.

"Roger would be my pick to win Wimbledon this year, but I would not be so sure how it would go if he plays Nadal in another final".

He will play South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson on Wednesday as he bids for a ninth Wimbledon singles title to draw level with record holder Martina Navratilova.

"These are the matches we work so hard for, me and my whole team". I am not saying I am not excited to play against Roger in the final. The 27-year-old Canadian, runner-up to Andy Murray in 2016, triumphed 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2. A former world number 15, she talked about retiring past year, saying that tennis "just wasn't fun" any more and that her main goal in 2018 was to feel good.

It's clearly not the first time Federer has honed his skills with a cricket bat.

Rather than simply guiding the bouncing ball away and towards one of the ball kids, Federer thought it would be a good opportunity to provide some bonus entertainment for his adoring fans at Wimbledon.

Rafael Nadal has breezed into his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2011.

The top-ranked Nadal bludgeoned 37 winners to take down unseeded Czech Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 and reach the last eight for the first time in seven years.

"Certainly this tournament, since that long match, has sort of been a house of horrors for me", Isner said.

Kei Nishikori - Nick Kyrgios's third-round vanquisher - also marched through, the Japanese superstar stopping fatiguing Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to make his first Wimbledon quarter final.

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

He'd never even been past the third round at the grass-court Grand Slam until this year.

Elsewhere in fourth round action, Dominika Cibulkova launched a scathing attack on Wimbledon's officials after a line call controversy marred her 6-4, 6-1 win against Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs. I think nerves are a great thing, it gets your system going.

So it's no wonder that Tsisipas, now 19 and one of the game's emerging stars, made a point of rewatching Federer's 2001 match against Sampras last week, the night before making his debut in Wimbledon's main draw.
