Murray into 10th straight Wimbledon last eight on Manic Monday

12 July 2017

He had Federer under real pressure at 5-5, forcing two break points, but he could not take either and was second best in the tie-break.

There's also situations I think like at the Aussie Open where there's three women's matches, two men's pretty much every day on the stadium court, as well.

"It was not my best match against a very uncomfortable opponent", said world number two Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion.

With all the tournament's fourth-round matches taking place on Monday, Centre Court and Court One were both stacked with male players, as has been customary at SW19 so far.

In between, Muller had to fight off a break point in the 13th game and four more in the 19th.

After giving Grigor Dimitrov no chances at all to even think about winning the match, Roger Federer will face #Milos Raonic next as he progresses in his record-breaking 50th #Grand Slam quarter-finals, 15th at Wimbledon.

Djokovic, the second seed at this year's Championships, overcame Latvia's Ernests Gulbis 6-4 6-1 7-6 (7-2) to set up a fourth-round clash with Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.

"He's someone that understands the occasion of playing big matches, big tournaments", Djokovic said. "I am ready for a tough one". For the women, the anticipated matchups are: Angelique Kerber vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova, Caroline Wozniacki vs. the victor of a match between unseeded players, Elina Svitolina vs. Venus Williams, and Johanna Konta would play Simona Halep.

De kans dat Adnan Januzaj nog lang op de loonlijst van Manchester United zal staan, lijkt heel miniem. De megatransfer van Romelu Lukaku naar Manchester United is weer een stapje dichterbij gekomen.

The matchups on the top half of the men's draw are defending champion Andy Murray vs. Benoit Paire, two-time Wimbledon victor Rafael Nadal vs.

"I thought it was a fun match to play against a serve-and-volley player. So I m really pleased with that", said Murray.

33 - Years since a British woman (Jo Durie, 1984) reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals until Johanna Konta did it Monday.

Federer followed Djokovic on Centre Court and described it as "a tad slippery" after losing his footing once, while Zverev also slipped and tumbled a couple of times.

Right after his, er, conversation with Garner, Djokovic lost a service game to trail 2-1.

"As late as 8:30 p.m., 30,000 people still remained in the grounds, and therefore moving the match would have created a significant safety issue".

Play starts on the outer courts at 11:30am, with Centre Court & No. 1 Court starting at 1pm BST.

He then defeated the Japanese star Kei Nishikori coming from two sets to one down, before comfortably defeating Mischa Zverev who was coming off the high of beating Andy Murray in the previous round. The 2014 U.S. Open finalist lost to Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3.
