Roger Federer

He has won 32 sets in a row at Wimbledon - two short of his personal best streak, between 2005's third round and the 2006 final. Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

"I think it's a pretty exciting opportunity to play Federer here at Wimbledon", Anderson, who has served 96 aces in four rounds, told reporters.

"Roger would be my pick to win Wimbledon this year, but I would not be so sure how it would go if he plays Nadal in another final". Del Potro was leading Simon two sets to one when their match was suspended because of darkness Monday night.

The World Cup showpiece will take place on Sunday at 18:00 (local time), which is 16:00 BST, meaning it is likely to kick off during the men's grass-court final, which eight-time champion Federer is a heavy favourite to be a part of.

"He's got weapons, a big serve and a big forehand", said Djokovic of the world number 40. I served well when I needed to.

"I'm very pleased to be back in the second week".

Catherine's parents, her sister and brother-in-law Pippa and James Matthews and her brother James will also be in attendance. Meghan opted fro an olive green Ralph Lauren dress, which featured a boatneck and a matching hat by Stephen Jones.

So, with two quarter-finals being played on Centre Court and two on Court One, something has got to give.

All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis, meanwhile, says Wimbledon organisers will not alter the schedule to accommodate a potential England final appearance.

The overall goal is try to win the tournament.

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

Rafael Nadal reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 to solidify the view he can finally win this tournament for a third occasion. He edged Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4), to whom he held a 0-5 head-to-head record entering the match.

BBC reports that the top seed is bidding for a joint record ninth singles title to draw level with Martina Navratilova. He was gifted a first-week stroll as pleasant as a walk on Wimbledon Common and begins the fourth round on Centre Court at 1pm against Adrian Mannarino. That's a Grand Slam semi-final from the US Open a few years ago. "I'm a perfectionist. I always find something wrong". But the 26-year-old underdog isn't ruling out an epic upset against Williams.

Group beats 92-year-old man with brick and spews racist slurs
Through a translator he said he was "just walking to the park" when he brushed by a woman with her young daughter. Family members said the woman pushed Rodriguez to the floor and beat him with a brick.

Federer returned the compliment saying the interaction with Tendulkar made his day special.

It's clearly not the first time Federer has honed his skills with a cricket bat.

Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens have all been eliminated already. She is seeded 25th after missing last year's tournament while pregnant. He next faces No. 13 Milos Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the US 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2. Also Simona Halep's conqueror, Su-Wei Hsieh, was defeated 6-4 6-1 by Dominika Cibulkova. In 2017, in a video interview with Wimbledon, Tendulkar said that he has been following the Swiss maestro for the last 10 years and spoke about how he admires Federer as a person because he is humble and kind. "After she was complaining, they were talking in Chinese, whatever language. But it never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision". Del Potro leads Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 0-0.
