Roger Federer, Serena Williams Cruise Into Wimbledon Last Eight
World number two and Defending champion Roger Federer defeated France’s Adrian Mannarino to cruise into the quarter-finals of the 2018 Wimbledon.
36-year-old Federer won 6-0 7-5 6-4 against the 22nd seed on Centre Court, without dropping a set, winning in one hour and 45 minutes.
The victory means the Swiss is two sets short of his all-time record streak, which he set between the third round in 2005 and the final in 2006 and has now won 32 consecutive sets at SW19.
He will play South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson or France’s Gael Monfils in the last eight on Wednesday.
Elsewhere in the men’s category, Milos Raonic beat Mackenzie McDonald in four sets to reach the last eight for the third year in a row.
While in the women’s category, Seven-time champion Serena Williams defeated Russia’s Evgeniya Rodina with a 6-2 6-2 straightforward win.
Rodina, whose left thigh and right knee were taped, often moved slowly and could not deal with Williams’ power.
The 36-year-old American will face world number 52 Camila Giorgi in the last eight.
