Admired by younger generation, Roger Federer isn't slowing down at Wimbledon

"It's what I wished for", said Djokovic when asked if he would have preferred to move to Centre Court.

Djokovic then lost the No 1 status to Federer, before claiming it back, only to lose it to Nadal, before once more claiming it back.

Djokovic had told reporters that he had been hopeful of playing his quarter-final match on Centre Court before telling Serbian media that he "deserved" the honour and meant to lobby the All England Club.

Williams raced into her 13th Wimbledon quarterfinal as the seven-time champion thrashed Rodina 6-2, 6-2 in a Centre Court masterclass.

Novak Djokovic was kept waiting in the wings till after 7 pm local time before he could start swinging his racket against Russia's Karen Khachanov at Wimbledon on Monday. Because it was, like, dark, you could see all the flashes.' The Spaniard tennis legend Manolo Santana added: 'It's the best match I saw live.

When Novak Djokovic came off No 1 Court after a quick, nearly angry three-set win over the young Russian Karen Khachanov on Monday evening, he made it clear he was sick of being parked outside the tournament'sshowpiece arena, having also tested the grass of No 2 Court in the second round, after just one match on Centre Court, against Kyle Edmund. We are talking about I am in quarter-finals. "I'm a perfectionist. I always find something wrong", she said.

The only fourth-round contest to be carried over to Tuesday lasted 4 hours, 24 minutes, making it the longest men's singles match of the tournament.

His opponent on Wednesday is eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson, the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1994 to get to the last eight.

Federer has now won 32 consecutive sets at SW19, leaving him just two short of his best run in the tournament, achieved across 2005 and 2006.

Novak Djokovic saved match points in consecutive US Open semi-finals against Federer to deny the NY crowd their dream final.

"He's got weapons, a big serve and a big forehand", said Djokovic of the world number 40.

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.

Eight-time champion Federer will play on Court One for the first time since the 2015 quarter-finals, with former world number one Djokovic's match against Nishikori put on Centre.

Cibulkova overcame a delay caused by a controversial decision from the umpire to advance to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Hsieh Su-Wei.

The fifth seed lost to Nadal in the Paris semi-finals last month, however.

He has also won both their meetings on grass, including at Wimbledon in 2011.

The 31-year-old Serb is five years younger than Federer and a year younger than Nadal.
