Anderson ticking off the boxes, Federer up next

Kevin Anderson will face Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarterfinals after Manic Monday produced a day of firsts for the South African.

Williams, who is seeking an eighth Wimbledon title, was even more efficient, needing 62 minutes to dispatch the 120th-ranked Evgeniya Rodina, 6-2, 6-2.

Seventh seed Karolina Pliskova's defeat by Kiki Bertens means that for the first time in the Open era, there will not be a top 10 women's seed in the last eight of a Grand Slam.

He beat Frenchman Gael Monfils for the first time in six attempts and in doing so reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time - at the 10th attempt. She beat the ninth-seeded Williams in the third round after coming from a break down in the third set.

"Of course, it is important for me to be in these quarter-finals". She has gone past the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012.

'In the third set he started to play better from the baseline and I had couple of mistakes with the game I lost.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko was aggressive throughout, hitting 28 winners - 13 coming off her backhand.

Support for nomination: Barrett also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who is beloved by conservatives. If she's chosen and confirmed, it would be the first time four women would serve together on the nine-member Supreme Court.


The Latvian player also reached the quarterfinals a year ago in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams. "I shouldn't say this, but I have worn those undies, or similar types, for the last few years", Millman told Australian reporters.

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.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was just 2 years old when Roger Federer, then a ponytailed 19-year-old with balletic grace, famously announced himself to the tennis world at Wimbledon in 2001 by toppling seven-time champion Pete Sampras in the fourth round. After the review confirmed the ball landed on the line, umpire Juan Zhang of China awarded the point to Cibulkova.

De Minaur was determined in his work as he saved four break points in scintillating exchanges with the double Wimbledon champion but, on the fifth, Nadal went 3-1 in front. The Swiss superstar said there was heightened awareness, players reacting to not just change but competition too.

The two-time champion made five finals between 2006 and 2011 - only missing out in 2009, when an injury kept him out of the competition. Not only has Federer not lost a set in the tournament so far, and not only hasn't he been broken so far, he hasn't so much as faced a single break point.

In the women's draw, world number one Simona Halep has crashed out of Wimbledon following a stunning 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 upset by Taiwan's Hsieh Su Wei in the third round.

I think the right way of looking at it is: "It's an opportunity to test myself against a player of Roger's caliber", said Anderson, who is 0-4 against Federer.
