Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Angelique Kerber

Roger Federer

He swept through the opening set in just 16 minutes, dropping just five points, before shifting down a gear to conserve petrol for what he expects to be a more arduous second week of the championships.

Defending champion Roger Federer sauntered into the Wimbledon quarterfinals with a dominant display Monday, beating Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4.

We can drop all of that, ' said Federer. "I'm telling myself, 'Why didn't I break the first game of the second?'"

His great rival Roger Federer had already maintained his regal progress earlier on the showcourt and Serena Williams then followed with another thumping win.

Was Mannarino intimidated by playing in that hallowed arena?

What they would probably have preferred is to play on a Center Court with a retractable grass surface - one that can open up and swallow them whole and spare them from receiving any further punishment from the most elegant executioner in tennis.

"The more I can just treat it like another tennis match, the better for me".

An eight-time victor of the men's singles at the All England Club, Federer was an overwhelming favorite against the 22nd seed and never looked like falling victim to a huge upset.

'Look, I'm equally happy if I would have won all the matches in four sets. He was able to tread water until 5-all, when Federer returned a 123 miles per hour serve, quickly gained control of a baseline exchange, then hopped and screamed, "Come on!" as a backhand flew long for the break. And he watched it again and again, taking note of Federer's quickness, net game, serve, variety of tactics and, above all, his composure. I think people can see that and can feel that.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs.

The 36-year-old is also on a streak of 32 consecutive sets won at the tournament, just two off his record.

"I mean, I'm definitely going to have to look at it the right way".

Second seed Nadal was made to work just hard enough by Veseley Czech without ever looking in any danger.

England's footballers play in their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 when they face Croatia on Wednesday, and supporters will be at fever pitch if they win to reach their first final since 1966.

The Spaniard beat unseeded Jiri Vesely 6-3 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court to set up a last-eight meeting with Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

Raonic fired 37 aces and 74 winners to defeat Mackenzie McDonald of the United States and reach the quarter-finals for the fourth time.

For Nadal, this marks a return.

"It was an important victory as since 2011 I have not been in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon".

"It's true, it has been a while", Nadal said. When I'm doing that, I think I'm a very risky player.
