Federer out of Wimbledon

Roger Federer wastes match point loses to Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon

Swiss tennis star Roger Federer on Monday entered the quarter-finals of Wimbledon after defeating France's Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 in the fourth round of the men's singles event here on Centre Court.

In the last eight he will face eighth seed Kevin Anderson, who he has beaten in straight sets in all four of their previous meetings, after the South African defeated Gael Monfils 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/2) 5-7 7-6 (7/4).

The Swiss had led by two sets to love and had a match point but collapsed late in a lengthy decider to crash out 6-2 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 4-6 11-13 in a contest that lasted more than four hours.

The first hiccup surfaced at the start of the second set with Anderson breaking the Federer serve and ending that run of holds.

The 12-time Grand Slam champion's confidence has been on display over the first four rounds.

2016 runner-up Milos Raonic faces ninth-seeded John Isner, who is playing in his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Roger Federer suggested a clash between the World Cup final and the Wimbledon men's singles final may be more of a concern for those in Russian Federation rather than competitors at SW19.

Mannarino was already handed a point after Federer's shot landed outside the court, but the Swiss was seen going on his front-foot and defending the ball with the middle of his racquet and a flawless roll of the wrists.

The odds are heavily stacked against Kevin Anderson ahead of his Wimbledon quarter-final against defending champion Roger Federer on Wednesday.

The world No 1 said: "Of course it's an important result for me".

Na cruises to victory at Greenbrier for first win since 2011
Not only did Na win, but he ran away from the field with a five shot victory. It was an easy putt, obviously, and all I needed to do was two-putt.

On Sunday, spectators were given a thrill when Nadal, Federer and Novak Djokovic all practiced side-by-side at the same time.

Toni Nadal again heaped praise on Roger Federer and his nephew Rafael Nadal for their achievements and contributions to the game of tennis over the last two decades.

"I feel like a lot of aspects of my game can give him a lot of trouble", Anderson said.

"The more I can just treat it like another tennis match, the better for me". Anderson added that Federer, who won his first Wimbledon title in 2003, is the ideal role model for the sport - and for those players in the chasing pack.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion appeared to be moving towards his fifth successive Wimbledon semi-final after taking the opening two sets. I think it went in spells a bit also, how I was able to return his serve.

There was still the small matter of holding serve but a 28th ace helped settle Anderson's nerves and be brought up match point with a massive forehand before completing a remarkable victory with a first serve that Federer could not handle.

"I don't think it really mattered, to be honest".

This was the first of three consecutive Wimbledon finals, where these two legends met.

Having saved Federer's only break point of a 90-minute fifth set at 3-4, Anderson took his first chance at 11-11 and then served out for victory.
