Federer has netted a 10-year deal with Uniqlo despite hid advancing years

TENNIS-GBR-WIMBLEDON

Del Potro was leading 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/5), 5-7 when his tie with Simon was halted for the night due to darkness.

This came after Federer took to channeling his inner Tendulkar while playing his fourth-round match against France's Adrian Mannarino whom he defeated 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 on Monday.

Like a vintage Rolls Royce, Federer cruised into the last eight for a mind-boggling 16th time with another imperious centre court display at The All England Club.

Del Potro went on to the semi-finals at Wimbledon five years ago and it took Novak Djokovic to halt him in a five-set epic played out over four and a half hours.

Novak Djokovic was kept waiting in the wings till after 7 pm local time before he could start swinging his racket against Russia's Karen Khachanov at Wimbledon on Monday. "If I want to beat him, I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands".

Del Potro trails world number one Nadal 10-5 in career meetings.

ICC even shared a screenshot of the Test batting rankings which showed the 20-time Grand Slam victor as the No. 1 batsmen in the World.

"But, sure, I was also surprised it was that fast, that first set, especially 16 minutes". Kerber was the runner-up at the All England Club in 2016, while 14th-seeded Kasatkina is in the last eight for the first time.

Later seven-time champion Serena Williams faces 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy, and 13th-seeded Julia Goerges faces Kiki Bertens as the pair both play in their first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Roger Federer thinks a scheduling clash between the World Cup and Wimbledon is football's issue, and not something tennis should be worrying about.

Whether it was a forward defensive shot or a back-foot cut, the eight-time champion's technique impressed the International Cricket Council.

Roger Federer, who has yet to lose a set during this tournament, celebrates his 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Rodina, who upset 10th-seeded Madison Keys in the previous round, broke back for 3-2 in the second set but was broken to love straight away.

On Wednesday on Centre Court, he will start as underdog against Nadal, the 17-time major victor who is in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 when he went on to finish runner-up. "It was dark so I couldn't see the ball that well and it was very windy".

For that matter, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli too has followed Federer's philosophy of not heeding much to what critics say and do what they deem best for themselves.

After seven years of struggles, Rafael Nadal is finally looking like a contender again at Wimbledon.
