Roger Federer beat Adrian Mannarino on Monday to progress to his 16th quarter-final at SW19.

Playing on Court No 6 in the shadow of Centre Court, 16-year-old Jack Draper was able to hear every cheer and purr of appreciation emanating from Roger Federer's victory against Adrian Mannarino.

By contrast, eight-time champion Federer, and Nadal, the title victor on two occasions, have played exclusively on the 15,000-seater Centre Court.

With South African Kevin Anderson taking nearly 3-1/2 hours to tame French showman Gael Monfils in a four-set thriller in the previous match, Djokovic was left with about two hours of daylight to complete his match against Karen Khachanov if wanted to avoid coming back on Tuesday again.

Per the Mirror's David McDonnell , Dejan Lovren and Danijel Subasic are doubts for Croatia , but full-back Sime Vrsaljko has been ruled out, according to Robert Cottingham of MailOnline.

"Of course this is an important result for me", Nadal said after the match. "I knew he was much better than that first set and he showed that".

The 12th game went to deuce eight times, with Simon saving four set points, as Del Potro failed to take his chances, the worst when he put an easy volley over the baseline with the court wide open. He edged Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4), to whom he held a 0-5 head-to-head record entering the match.

Asked if he expected more from an opponent in the world's top 30, Federer said: "I think it's a tough matchup for him maybe against me".

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal is realistic about who he wants to face should he reach the Wimbledon final this year.

It was also revealed Monday that the Duke and Duchess had chosen two hymns, two lessons and two anthems for the christening. The family held a private ceremony with close family, however, the Queen and Prince Philip did not attend.

It's clearly not the first time Federer has honed his skills with a cricket bat. Federer has such a good game for grass. The second seed defeated Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court.

Having missed Wimbledon a year ago while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother. Nadal, a two-time Wimbledon champion, reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinals since 2011, when he was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2011.

But there was no stopping the Serb once he made it on to Court One as he romped to a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 win to reach the quarter-finals for a 10th time.

An eight-time victor of the men's singles at the All England Club, Federer was an overwhelming favorite against the 22nd seed and never looked like falling victim to a huge upset. We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament.
