  • Fans won't be able to buy Roger Federer's Uniqlo products until 2019

Mannarino had returned a long Federer backhand and the Swiss maestro wasted no time in showing off his cricket skills, which captured social media by storm. Legendary boxing promoter Don King was brought in to hype up the contest - using the moniker "Grapple in the Apple".

Djokovic, a three-time victor of Wimbledon, has played just one of his four matches on Centre this year but will return to the main court on Wednesday when he faces Kei Nishikori. The upset serves as a reminder that in sport, match-ups can not be cherry-picked in advance. Should Djokovic, Nadal and Federer win, it would be the first time all three played in a semifinal since the 2012 French Open.

Two of those men have experience in doing precisely that.

Simon saved a fourth match point when he threw the kitchen sink at a forehand return and he eventually took his fourth break point to level at 5-5.

Del Potro trails Nadal 10-5 in head-to-head meetings - his five wins all coming on hardcourts. He's played there a few more times than that. That variety and injection of pace made Mannarino so unsure of his game and like I've said many times before Fed's brand of tennis is just so unique.

Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro earned himself a chance to set the record straight against Rafael Nadal after sealing a place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday.

"It is an important moment for me". "It's always like a big war for me when I play Novak".

During his first set, Federer's unique style of shot catching Wimbledon's attention leading it to be dubbed as an nearly "cricket" style with their Twitter account asking the ICC to rate Federer's shot. In terms of the Quarter Finals normal posting should resume, still on a bit of a road trip so I can't squeeze posts in like I have done if I'm on a train or plane but it's slightly less hectic now and I will, of course, be watching tomorrow. I'm really happy for you.

Anderson, who reached his first Grand Slam final at the 2017 US Open, had lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon on three previous occasions.

American ninth seed John Isner, another player making a career-best run on the grass, and Canadian 13th seed Milos Raonic - the runner-up two years ago - clash in a quarter-final featuring the tournament's top two ace leaders.

Two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber is taking on Russian Daria Kasatkina on Centre Court.

On Wednesday on Centre Court, he will start as underdog against Nadal, the 17-time major victor who is in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 when he went on to finish runner-up.
