Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on course for inevitable conclusion

Rafael Nadal Wimbledon Roger Federer

The Russian, 21, won her first title previous year and reached the French Open quarter-finals last month.

Top seed Federer, 36, has now won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon, just two behind his record set from the third round in 2005 to his title triumph in 2006. They have joked all week that they probably will retire at the same time, and that could take them all the way to the 2020 Olympics.

The 32-year-old was made to work just hard enough by the Czech, who is clearly more unsafe than his 93rd ranking suggests but he never looked in any danger of not booking a last eight spot - which he did for the first time since 2011. Federer has such a good game for grass. Shouldn't really happen but thankfully they do for me. She revealed also she has never even spoken to Williams, whom she has long admired.

Djokovic had to play that fourth round on Tuesday and quarter-final on Wednesday when he was forced to retire against Tomas Berdych with an elbow injury. But the 26-year-old underdog isn't ruling out an epic upset against Williams.

Meanwhile, seventh seed Karolina Pliskova crashed out at the hands of Kiki Bertens, leaving no top-10 seeds remaining in the women's draw. Williams meets the victor of Camila Giorgi and the perennial giant-killer Ekaterina Makarova, who put out the second seed Caroline Wozniacki in the second round.

He has also lost all four meetings against the 20-time major victor, failing to win a set off the great Swiss star. It demonstrated two truths: Djokovic, beatable on Murray's best day, was still too good for Edmund in one of his own less dominant moods.

The chaos started Friday, when the Haitian government announced its plan to raise prices on gasoline, diesel and kerosene. The last-minute cancellations Saturday morning affected passengers at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport.

On No. 1 Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic faces Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation. It forced him to work a bit harder to break serve and create opportunities to close the match with an efficiency that should serve him well in future rounds.

He will next play either another Frenchman, Gael Monfils, or South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson.

Nadal, like Federer yet to drop a set, routed world number 93 Vesely on the eve of the Czech player's 25th birthday. His former coach, Wayne Ferreira, said at the start of the tournament, "He is one to watch" - and he is not wrong.

Simon, looking for his third Grand Slam quarter-final at the age of 33, secured the first break of the match to take a 4-3 lead in the second set when Del Potro netted a return.

And for the fortunate 14,000 with Centre Court tickets, it served up back-to-back-to-back matches featuring Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal - the greatest of their generation and arguably tennis history, with 60 Grand Slam championships and 17 Wimbledon singles titles among them.

American ninth seed John Isner also reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-4, 7-6 (10/8), 7-6 (7/4) win over Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas.
