Wimbeldon C'ships: Federer, Djokovic And Nadal Into Quarter-finals
Champ Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are into quarter-finals of Wimbeldon Championships.
Champion Roger Federer's pursuit of a record ninth Wimbledon title gathered momentum as he reached the quarter-finals with a 6-0 7-5 6-4 win over Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
Federer was in blinding form during the first set, which blazed by in 16 minutes. He will next play either another Frenchman, Gael Monfils, or South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson.
Spain's Rafael Nadal romped to a 6-4 6-2 6-2 win against Russia's Karen Khachanov to reach the quarter-finals for a 10th time.
Djokovic, winner of three singles titles at the all England club, will next meet Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori.
Rafael Nadal also made it to quarter-finals with a regulation 6-3 6-3 6-4 win over Czech Jiri Vesely in one hour and 53 minutes.
Victory for the second seed means he has made the last-eight stage of a major tournament 35 times to sit fifth on the list for the most grand slam quarter-final appearances in the open era ahead of Ivan Lendl.
It is the first time Nadal has reached the quarter-finals since finishing runner-up in 2011.
