I'm not sure.' Revealing the keys to be at the top in tennis, Federer added: 'I think physically to stay, you know, up there.

Federer's progression to the last-eight saw him extend his Open Era record for the most quarter-finals reached at Wimbledon, which he set previous year.

Federer defeated Mannarino 6-0 7-5 6-4 to reach the quarter-final of Wimbledon 2018.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic, seeded a lowly 12 this year, can make his 10th Wimbledon quarter-final if he defeats unseeded Karen Khachanov, the world number 40 from Russian Federation.

Over the past week none of Roger Federer's opponents needed to play on a court with a retractable roof as Wimbledon has been roasting in 30 degrees Celsius temperatures. The only consolation for the 22nd-seeded Mannarino was that he became the first player to earn a break point on Federer's serve during the tournament.

All remaining men's and women's singles title challengers are in action, with a Centre Court lineup that includes Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal.

A single break of serve was all Nadal required in the opening set and he broke twice in the second.

BTTS has landed in both Belgium's knockout games - 3-2 v Japan and 2-1 v Brazil - and it's [1.9] for 'Yes' paying out again. He said Henry had made Belgium into "a team that likes to attack".

Mannarino won only one point on his own serve as Federer hit 11 winners to just one unforced error.

Halep claimed the first set comfortably after surging 4-2 in front to claim the first set but Hsieh, who is ranked 47 places below the Romanian, stormed back to steal the second.

"A couple of guys pretending they were coughing and whistling while I was bouncing the ball more or less to the end of the match", said the former world number one.

Converting any of them, however, was mission impossible as Federer saved all four to take his streak of winning successive service games at Wimbledon to 81, dating back to last year's semi-finals.

Williams is 6-2 in her career against Kerber, but the match might be better than expected given the tight major finals played between the two in 2016. "I can only really practice it with my coach".

Since finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2011, Nadal has been knocked out by four players ranked outside the world's top 100 - Lukas Rosel, Steve Darcis, Nick Kyrgios and Dustin Brown - as well as a surprise defeat by Luxembourg's Gilles Muller past year.
