Admired by younger generation, Roger Federer isn't slowing down at Wimbledon

Day Four The Championships- Wimbledon 2018

The fifth-seeded del Potro failed to convert four match points when serving at 5-4 in the fourth set, but maintained his composure to close out the contest with his first opportunity in the tiebreaker that followed.

With the Wimbledon lawns baked and playing more bouncy than usual after a long spell of hot weather in London, it could be the 29-year-old's best chance to stop Nadal's impressive run.

Three times he has been scheduled last on court, putting him at risk of falling victim to fading light with the burden of having to return the following day.

The cricketing body also chose to indulge in some banter and quickly responded to Wimbledon's Twitter handle about ranking Federer as the number one Test batsmen in the world.

"It was crucial for him to stay in the match at the beginning of the second set and then it got tougher", said 20-time major victor Federer.

He eventually finished off world number 53 Simon in the match's third tiebreak to move into his second Wimbledon quarter-final where twice champion Nadal is waiting. "That's the thing. I can be here, I can't come here and say, 'no, of course I want to play against the best players'".

Whether it was a forward defensive shot or a back-foot cut, the eight-time champion's technique impressed the International Cricket Council. No, that's Roger Federer.

Both Tendulkar and Federer are maestros in their own fields and have entertained sports enthusiasts with their immaculate efficiencies.

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.

Wimbledon is set for its annual "Manic Monday" as the fourth round gets underway at the All England Club.

The 21-year-old Ostapenko, the youngest player remaining in the women's draw, next faces 33rd-ranked Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. "It was dark so I couldn't see the ball that well and it was very windy".

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.

Del Potro is in his first quarter-final at the tournament since 2013 when he reached the semi-final.

Should No. 103 Mackenzie McDonald defeat former runner-up Milos Raonic later Monday, it will be the first time since 2000 that two men outside the top 100 have made the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
