Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer bagels and beats Adrian Mannarino

Roger Federer makes his ATP debut on this day 20 years ago

Del Potro needed five match points to prevail in a match suspended on Monday night under fading light and stretched four hours and 24 minutes in duration.

The eight-time champion competed with great tenacity and was a continual menace to French number 22 seed Adrian Mannarino in a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory on Centre Court.

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.

In the quarter-finals, the Swiss will face Kevin Anderson, while Nadal could face either Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, the highest-seeded woman remaining at No. 7, plays Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

But the 23-time major winner's blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

Shapovalov's Wimbledon ended in the second round.

Her next opponent will be Camila Giorgi, who is into her first Grand Slam quarterfinals after defeating Ekaterina Makarova 6-3 6-4.

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

But Federer offered a contrasting view in his media conference following a 6-0 7-5 6-4 fourth-round win over Adrian Mannarino on Monday.

Dawn Sturgess, from Durrington, died at Salisbury District Hospital earlier this evening, the Meteropolitan Police said. Hours later, emergency workers responded to the same address after the 45-year-old man had fallen ill, police said.

Awaiting Djokovic is a 10th Wimbledon quarter-final, in which he faces Japan's Kei Nishikori.

Germany's Julia Goerges apologised after beating close friend Kiki Bertens to progress to the first semi-final of her career at Wimbledon.

Bertens, who was contemplating retirement a year ago after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, is the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007. For my money, his was his cleanest performance of the tournament so far and it was nice to see him stave off those break points when they finally arrived.

Roger Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last 8.

Of the half-dozen pretenders, these two appear most likely to play the pantomime villain.

But the United States president, a keen tennis fan, has a packed schedule after touching down on Friday, and Wimbledon looks like missing out to Chequers and Theresa May ... or whoever is prime minister that day. Shouldn't really happen, but thankfully they do for me.

(11) Angelique Kerber bt.

The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis.
