Guitar man Kevin Anderson wants rhythm not blues against Roger Federer

Guitar man Kevin Anderson wants rhythm not blues against Roger Federer

Tendulkar, Tendulkar, the former India captain widely renown as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, was impressed by Federer's form after the 20-time Grand Slam champion was spotted praticising his forward defence during his victory over Adrian Mannarino at Wimbledon.

He also holds a 4-0 career lead over 2017 US Open runner-up Anderson who has yet to take a set off the Swiss.

Wimbledon's Twitter handle was quick to notice and in a tongue-in-cheek tweet, they asked ICC to rate Federer's shot.

Djokovic has featured just once on Centre Court - against British home favourite Kyle Edmund in the last 32 - in the opening four rounds. "Sometimes the things works better, sometimes worse". Federer has such a good game for grass.

The Swiss great has played every match on Centre Court since then, losing in the semifinals in 2016 and winning a record eighth title a year ago.

The build-up to playing Federer will be a little quieter.

For that matter, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli too has followed Federer's philosophy of not heeding much to what critics say and do what they deem best for themselves.

Roger Federer will be playing in his 53rd Grand Slam last 8.

That won't happen here, at least not this year, for Tsitsipas or Shapovalov.

"It's true it has been a while", Nadal said about his return to the last eight.

Victory for Nadal over his fellow left-hander would take him into a 35th Grand Slam quarterfinal. Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Last year Djokovic was in an identical position when crammed on to the card three days in a row because the club decided it would have been unsafe to move his rain-delayed fourth-round match under the roof of Centre Court on Monday evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo quits Real Madrid, signs for Juventus
This hat-trick was also Ronaldo's 51st during his professional career and was also the 51st scored in World Cup history. Juventus are record Italian champions and have won seven consecutive Serie A titles. "For now, it's the World Cup ".

It was tennis for the gluttonous: a feast.

Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic all advanced at Wimbledon on Monday.

All three easily handled outclassed opponents.

In the first set of his round of 16 clash against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, Federer had an opportunity to be playful with a dead ball that was bouncing towards him. The chair umpire intoned "Game, Federer" so frequently, it began to sound like the refrain of a song.

"It was crucial for him to stay in the match at the beginning of the second set and then it got tougher", said Federer after his 6th win in 6 meetings against French left-hander Mannarino.

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.

Leading, 5-4, and two points away from taking the first set at 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova struck a backhand onto the baseline that was called out.

What lies ahead will now test Nadal to the fullest, though.

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.

The 11-time French Open champion beat Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court on Monday and has yet to drop a set in this tournament.

The women's quarterfinals are underway at Wimbledon.
