Nadal, like Federer yet to drop a set, routed world number 93 Vesely on the eve of the Czech player's 25th birthday.

It means Nadal is now in his 35th Grand Slam quarterfinal and following previous years of injuries and bad luck at SW19, the Spaniard was pleased to reach the last eight.

"I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".

It was not until he walked off court after booking his place in the quarter-finals that he heard how close he had come to being bumped off Monday's schedule. It is true that it has been a while since I have been in that position.

Wherever he ends up playing, Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion, will be favourite to see off Nishikori for a 14th time in 16 meetings.

When asked if he was anxious about Sunday's World Cup final in Russian Federation clashing with the Wimbledon men's singles final, Roger Federer couldn't help but laugh. That, of course, is a positive result.

Rafael Nadal has breezed into his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2011.

Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France on Monday.


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

Since he exited Wimbledon at the first-round stage past year, Anderson has enjoyed a solid return, making four finals, including his deep run at the US Open where he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal.

"If he's in the final, I am excited to play Roger", stated Nadal. Sometimes I'm also complaining because I think it was a wrong call.

"Facing Roger again will be something fantastic", said Nadal. If you ask me if I prefer another (opponent), I say yes. "That's the point. It's about being smart, no?"

Williams, who is seeking an eighth Wimbledon title, was even more efficient, needing 62 minutes to dispatch the 120th-ranked Evgeniya Rodina, 6-2, 6-2.

The 32-year-old became the first South African man into the last eight at the All England Club since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

In a sense, it is one more bullet point that belongs on the list of Federer's contributions to tennis when he retires: 20 Grand Slam titles (and counting); eight Wimbledon titles (and counting); and unofficial coach and mentor to the next generation that both reveres and hopes to supplant him one day, as he did Sampras almost two decades ago.

Nadal faces the victor of Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon while Federer takes on US Open finalist Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals.
