Wimbledon 2018: Irrepressible Rafael Nadal marches past Jiri Vesely into last eight

Wimbledon Day 5 Live Wimbledon Live Garbine Muguruza crashed out in the second round

Federer showed his backhand to be just as effective in Mannarino's next service game and the Swiss won four straight points to take control of the set.

If Federer and Nadal advance to the final, they'd meet in the championship 10 years after one of their best Wimbledon battles, a five-set masterpiece won by Nadal. Mannarino, meanwhile, has converted 19 of 29 break points he's earned as a returner, the highest success rate of anyone remaining.

Federer is up first, at 1pm local time on Centre Court, against Adrian Mannarino while Nadal will close the day's play inside the 15,000-seat stadium against Jiri Vesely.

With the draw opening up in her favour, Williams is widely expected to make history with a first Grand Slam title since the birth of her daughter Olympia in September past year.

Eight-time champion Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last-eight when he tackles either Gael Monfils of France or Kevin Anderson, the eighth-seeded South African.

With that, the door shut on Mannarino as Federer broke for a 5-4 lead and served it out to love.

Bertens and Pliskova had reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time.

He was in cruise control from there and raced to the first set before two more breaks in the second solidified Nadal's domination.

Roger Federer has won a record eight grand slam titles at Wimbledon wearing complete whites. Something, Austria's junior singles player Jurij Rodionov had to endure a year ago when he was sent off the court after officials twice checked his underwear on the court and determined it was too dark to meet the tournament's dress code.

The Latvian player also reached the quarterfinals previous year in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic all will be in action as Week 2 begins.

Leading 5-4 and two points away from taking the first set at 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova struck a backhand onto the baseline that was called out. I just feel like it's not really what you do in a practice with other guys.

Even if Federer is tested by the players in his half of the draw, it won't compare to what Nadal has to go through as major champions Juan Martin Del Potro and Novak Djokovic are still alive.
