Roger Federer not concerned about start of World Cup game

Elsewhere, Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France.

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

His opponent on Wednesday is eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson, the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1994 to get to the last eight.

"I always had that lead in the bag and then it was important for me to stay focused".

"The one thing I can assure you is that Nadal has never struggled for one second with motivation and while he has not been at his best on grass in recent years, he will think he can do well this year".

"Maybe you should ask the questions over in Russian Federation, how they're going to feel about Wimbledon being played at the same time, so..." The 27-year-old Canadian, runner-up to Andy Murray in 2016, triumphed 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2.

Federer has looked in imperious form throughout the opening week, progressing to the last 16 without facing a break, while world No 1 Rafael Nadal has also produced some excellent displays.

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. And Williams was followed by Rafael Nadal - two titles at Wimbledon, 17 at all Slams - who dispatched 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

The victor of that clash will take on either Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori or unseeded Ernests Gulbis. He will face Djokovic next in his first quarterfinals appearance at the All England Club.

In a sense, it is one more bullet point that belongs on the list of Federer's contributions to tennis when he retires: 20 Grand Slam titles (and counting); eight Wimbledon titles (and counting); and unofficial coach and mentor to the next generation that both reveres and hopes to supplant him one day, as he did Sampras almost two decades ago.

Elsewhere in fourth round action, Dominika Cibulkova launched a scathing attack on Wimbledon's officials after a line call controversy marred her 6-4, 6-1 win against Taiwan's Hsieh Su-Wei.

So it's no wonder that Tsisipas, now 19 and one of the game's emerging stars, made a point of rewatching Federer's 2001 match against Sampras last week, the night before making his debut in Wimbledon's main draw.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs. I am excited. It will be a good result for me.

Beaten by Serena in the 2016 final, Kerber takes on Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, a 6-7 (6/8), 6-3, 6-2 victor against Belgian world number 47 Alison Van Uytvanck.
