Juan Martin Del Potro scraps past Simon to set up Nadal clash

Roger Federer

During his Wimbledon fourth-round victory over Adrian Mannarino on Monday, with the ball having already been called out, Federer played a stroke that was more akin to cricket than tennis.

Nishikori is playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final.

Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro in action during the fourth round match against France's Gilles Simon.

"It's true it has been a while", Nadal said about his return to the last eight.

BBC reports that the top seed is bidding for a joint record ninth singles title to draw level with Martina Navratilova. I think nerves are a great thing, it gets your system going. "If it happens, it happens".

Cibulkova was furious when Hsieh successfully persuaded the umpire to replay a point that was initially called in the Slovakian's favour and would have given her three set points in the opening set. "It's always like a big war for me when I play Novak".

Federer was surprised by the quick nature of the first set.

It has been seven long years since the world No.1 has reached the final eight in London.

It will be 32-year-old Nadal's 35th appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final as he continues his bid to win an 18th major title.

Their one defeat came against Belgium in their final group game, in a match between two essentially reserve sides. Southgate has been just the voice of reason England have needed to prevent anyone from getting too carried away.

In 2002, the team lost to Senegal in the opening match. "There is a big rivalry between France and Belgium , it is kind of a derby", he added.

A fast track court had covicted four to death in less than year after the brutal gang-rape and murder of the paramedic student. The four convicts-Mukesh, Pawan, Vinay and Akshay-were awarded death sentence by a Delhi trial court in 2013.

The win also allowed Isner, the highest-ranked US 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. "If they're not moving as well, it's hard for them to be in balance for passing shots". The last time two German women reached any Grand Slam semifinals was at the 1993 French Open, featuring Steffi Graf and Anke Huber.

Djokovic has beaten the Japanese 24th seed in 13 of their 15 meetings.

In many respects, the Swiss was playing against a standard he has set for himself on grass, which has become his natural habitat. "I feel physically, mentally ready, fit, positive".

Novak Djokovic is Nishikori's next challenge after the three-time champion thumped Russian world number 40 Karen Khachanov 6-4 6-2 6-2 in an ominous display. Nadal then plays Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic.

The 32-year-old looks refreshed following his decision to pull out of Queen's and now, unlike Del Potro, has had the benefit of a day off.

Del Potro completed an epic 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-5) win over Frenchman Gilles Simon after fading light interrupted their last-16 clash on Monday night with the fifth seed up two sets to one.

Nadal demolished the giant Argentine for the loss of just seven games in the French Open semi-finals last month.

"It will be a different match that we played in Paris few weeks ago", he said. Because it was, like, dark, you could see all the flashes.' The Spaniard tennis legend Manolo Santana added: 'It's the best match I saw live.
