Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer's Cricket Skills Impress Sachin Tendulkar

Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Roger Federer

Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Roger Federer

His play already has fans and commentators dreaming of another final between Nadal and Roger Federer - on the 10th anniversary of their five-set classic that the Spaniard won.

He was down a break in the third set but broke right back for 3-3 and then converted his third match point when Vesely missed a backhand. And he watched it again and again, taking note of Federer's quickness, net game, serve, variety of tactics and, above all, his composure. "Sometimes the things works better, sometimes worse".

The eighth-seeded Anderson hit 20 aces on his way to setting up a last-eight meeting with Federer.

"Today was a special day, played a good match and had the chance to catch up with the great indian cricket star Sachin Tendulkar", read a caption on the Federer's Facebook.

The build-up to playing Federer will be a little quieter. Her own daughter, Anna, is six years old and travels with her on Tour - as does little Olympia with Williams, although the heat might keep her off Centre Court on Monday.

Hsieh's protests to the umpire prompted the match referee to come on court to intervene as the argument lasted over seven minutes before the point was finally replayed, much to Cibulkova's disgust.

Having missed Wimbledon previous year while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

That won't happen here, at least not this year, for Tsitsipas or Shapovalov.

The overall goal is try to win the tournament.

And though his Wimbledon debut ended there Monday, when he ran into the big serve and arrhythmic game of the 6-foot-10 John Isner, Tsitsipas said he was pleased to have achieved his goal.

If he ever decides to stop playing tennis, Roger Federer may have a future in another sport.

Monday's win took Nadal, 32, into a 35th Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Shapovalov's Wimbledon ended in the second round.

Novak Djokovic insists it's only fair that he should play his Wimbledon quarter-final on Centre Court on Wednesday, handing the All England Club a dilemma over relegating Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to Court One.

It was tennis for the gluttonous: a feast.

The evergreen Swiss looks well on course to defend his title and claim a staggering ninth win on the famous grass courts in West London, with Rafael Nadal seemingly the only man capable of stopping him.

All three easily handled outclassed opponents.

They clapped and yelled when Federer's drop volley capped a 16-minute tour de force of a first set in which he won 21 of the first 23 points. The chair umpire intoned "Game, Federer" so frequently, it began to sound like the refrain of a song.

"We'll see. Hopefully", said Djokovic when asked if he expected to face Japan's Kei Nishikori on the most famous arena in tennis. Along with his 44 winners (to Mannarino's 18), all are hallmarks of a player in full command.

What lies ahead will now test Nadal to the fullest, though.
