  • Djokovic won the last of his Wimbledon titles in 2015

The last-16 tie between Del Potro and Frenchman Simon was suspended overnight due to darkness on Monday with the Argentine fifth seed two sets to one ahead.

The top-ranked Spaniard is back in the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the first time since 2011 - and playing a lot like the man who reached his fifth final that year.

Novak Djokovic won his battle to be promoted to Centre Court billing for Wednesday's quarter-finals, forcing eight-time champion Roger Federer off the sport's most famous arena for the first time in three years.

Meanwhile, Federer will start at 1pm on Court 1 and will face the victor of Raonic and Isner in the semi-finals.

The ICC shared an image of the Test rankings for batsmen which showed the 20-time Grand Slam victor as the number one batsman in the world.

Kei Nishikori - Nick Kyrgios's third-round vanquisher - also marched through, the Japanese superstar stopping fatiguing Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to make his first Wimbledon quarter final.

Nadal, chasing an 18th major, leads former US Open champion Del Potro 10-5 and Simon 8-1. Even if I played, I was not able to compete with the knees the way I had. Kerber was the runner-up at the All England Club in 2016, while 14th-seeded Kasatkina is in the last eight for the first time.

Federer, sublime so far, will be a step up but Anderson is making all the right noises as he prepares for arguably the biggest challenge in tennis.

There aren't many people who could teach Sachin Tendulkar a thing or two about cricket, but Federer appears to be one of them.

Roger Federer needed just 16 minutes to win the opening set in a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino to reach his 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal on Monday, July 9.

It all began with the official Twitter account of Wimbledon posting a video of Federer in action, with him playing what looks like a forward defensive stroke.

Monfils and Anderson have yet to get to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, although the French shotmaker may just be the slight favorite as he has a 5-0 winning record over the big South African.

Last year Djokovic was in an identical position when crammed on to the card three days in a row because the club decided it would have been unsafe to move his rain-delayed fourth-round match under the roof of Centre Court on Monday evening.

Rodina, who upset 10th-seeded Madison Keys in the previous round, broke back for 3-2 in the second set but was broken to love straight away.

The highest remaining seeded player in the women's draw - No. 11 Angelique Kerber - faces Daria Kasatkina, who plays in her first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Federer remains unbroken in the tournament in reaching the last eight and has a very kind draw through to the showpiece final.

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