Federer impresses Tendulkar with cricket skills at Wimbledon
Jul 11, 2018, 00:32
Nadal, who plays at a slower, more deliberate pace, had no trouble with 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely either, dismissing him, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4, in less than two hours.
Wimbledon organisers have instead given Novak Djokovic the honour of getting the men's quarter-finals underway on the main stage when he takes on Kei Nishikori.
It was all started when leading 2-0 in the first set, Mannarino's default serve was defended by Federer in an nearly "cricket" style. "If I want to beat him, I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands". "Facing Roger again will be something fantastic".
'One it's an unbelievable feat but also it must take an incredible amount out of you and winning that French Open for him must have been something he'd been trying to do for a very, very long time and he'd put so much effort in, lost some tough ones in the years gone by. "That's the point. It's about being smart, no?"

Isner rode his big serve to advance over the Greek teenager 6-4, 7-6 (8), 7-6 (4).
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 is the first time in Wimbledon history not one of the top 10 women's seeds have reached the quarterfinals.
Nishikori is playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final.
"I don't think it's something anybody aims for, to win every match in straight sets", Federer said.
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.
"So far four matches have been really, really good for me", said Djokovic, who also eliminated British number one Kyle Edmund in the third round.
Julia Goerges advanced to her first Wimbledon semifinal with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens. It was a year in which he won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, while he ended the season with a 70-6 record, but more significantly, a 10-1 showing against Federer and Nadal.
He will play South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson or France's Gael Monfils in the last eight on Wednesday.
The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis.
Standing in the way yet could be fourth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro in the quarterfinals - the Argentine's fourth-round match was suspended with him holding a 2-1 set lead - and then possibly three-time champion Djokovic in the semifinals.
Del Potro looked flat as he was broken to trail 3-1 but he clawed his way back to lead 5-4 with his serve to come.
