Djokovic beats fading light & Khachanov to reach quarters

Djokovic beats fading light & Khachanov to reach quarters

The last time Federer played a Wimbledon match away from Centre Court it had no negative impact as he trounced Gilles Simon at the same stage of the 2015 tournament before beating home favorite Andy Murray to reach the final where he was undone by a dominant Novak Djokovic.

Her next opponent will be Camila Giorgi, who is into her first Grand Slam quarterfinals after defeating Ekaterina Makarova 6-3 6-4. "It was hard in the last few games".

Williams, who hasn't faced a player ranked inside the top 40 en route to the last four, will next face 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany or 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

Even Djokovic admits his dramatic fall from grace after arriving at The All England Club in 2016 as the first man since Rod Laver in 1968 to hold all four slams simultaneously, only to rapidly relinquish them, had been mystifying.

Bertens, who was contemplating retirement a year ago after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, is the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007.

Officials in DE have identified the driver of the truck as a Maryland resident, but no charges have been filed. Ballocanag wept to her friend from her hospital bed, "They're all gone", Ballocanag's friend told him.

The only player with a superior head-to-head record over both grand slam giants, Djokovic has warned he's finally approaching his own brilliant best after an utterly unexpected two-year major title drought.

The 33-year-old Simon saved a fourth match point when he threw the kitchen sink at a forehand return and the world number 53 eventually took his fourth break point to level at 5-5. "Of course, it's important for me to be in these quarter-finals".

Like a vintage Rolls Royce, Federer cruised into the last eight for a mind-boggling 16th time with another imperious centre court display at The All England Club.

Del Potro fell 4-1 behind in the third set after Simon broke in the third game.

The top-ranked Nadal bludgeoned 37 winners to take down unseeded Czech Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 and reach the last eight for the first time in seven years.

First, it was Trevor Ariza bolting for a one-year, $15 million in Phoenix, leaving them without their veteran wing starter. Anthony averaged a career-low 16.2 points per game last season on 40.4 per cent from the field.

The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995. With a 9th Wimbledon title on the cards, Federer looks in ruthless form and has now won 32 consecutive sets to reach the last 8 of the competition. We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament.

"To be fair and honest, we have to think about the things that happened". Shouldn't really happen, but thankfully they do for me.

Cibulkova went on to advance to a third Wimbledon quarterfinal, following 2011 and 2016. "I probably won't have another 6-0 set this week, so I'll enjoy this one".

But the former world No.1 revealed at her post-match interview that the score actually flattered her.

Beaten by Serena in the 2016 final, Kerber takes on Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, a 6-7 (6/8), 6-3, 6-2 victor against Belgian world number 47 Alison Van Uytvanck.
