Nadal ends seven-year wait, return to Wimbledon quarter-finals

Wimbledon- Monday Schedule Federer Nadal Djokovic Williams to play

Federer defeated Mannarino 6-0 7-5 6-4 to reach the quarter-final of Wimbledon 2018.

They clapped and yelled when Federer's drop volley capped a 16-minute tour de force of a first set in which he won 21 of the first 23 points.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was just 2 years old when Roger Federer, then a ponytailed 19-year-old with balletic grace, famously announced himself to the tennis world at Wimbledon in 2001 by toppling seven-time champion Pete Sampras in the fourth round.

If Federer and Nadal advance to the final, they'd meet in the championship 10 years after one of their best Wimbledon battles, a five-set masterpiece won by Nadal.

"It was great to win that first set so quickly", Federer told the BBC. "I knew he was much better than that first set and he showed that".

He has fully-justified his seeding of eight and was mentally rock-solid in winning three tiebreaks against Monfils in his four-set win on Court One.

Federer, who has won 32 consecutive sets at the tournament and held serve 81 games in a row, was asked whether he paused for even a moment to wonder why he wasn't being given more of a test.

There are uncertainties in that lineup - but the story at the end of the drama is likely to be the same as it has been for the past seven grand slam tournaments: victory for either Federer or Nadal.

Roger Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last 8. She has gone past the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012.

Williams had made a tentative return to action following complications during daughter Olympia's birth, struggling in her few appearances before pulling out midway through the recent French Open with a pectoral injury. He next faces No. 13 Milos Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the US 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Kevin Anderson will face Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarterfinals after Manic Monday produced a day of firsts for the South African.

"I don't think it's something anybody aims for, to win every match in straight sets".

Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time.

"I've often said the day that you don't feel nervous is the day you should be more anxious about".

If Federer does win a ninth title the chances are he will be celebrating at the champions' ball on Sunday evening alongside his friend and contemporary Serena Williams, also 36 - and with three majors more than him at 23. "I'm going to have to really take it to him".

But is the Serb's recovering game sound enough yet, or his elbow sufficiently strong to keep rattling down those aces, to intimidate a player made in Edmund's power-play mode, Karen Khachanov, in the third match on No 1 Court on Monday? No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko vs. Dominika Cibulkova, and No. 13 Julia Goerges vs. Isner, 33, will be playing in his first quarterfinal at the majors since the 2011 U.S. Open when he faces former Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic.
