Del Potro scraps past Simon to set up Nadal clash

Next up for Nadal is either Juan Martin del Potro, the fifth seeded Argentine, or unseeded Gilles Simon of France.

On Wednesday, the 29-year-old will be playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2013, when he went on to lose to Novak Djokovic in an epic semi-final.

Del Potro trails Nadal 10-5 in head-to-head meetings - his five wins all coming on hardcourts.

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.

"I've often said the day that you don't feel nervous is the day you should be more anxious about".

The 32-year-old became the first South African man into the last eight at the All England Club since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Nadal, who plays at a slower, more deliberate pace, had no trouble with 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely either, dismissing him, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4, in less than two hours.

Serena Williams has survived another day of Wimbledon carnage to edge ever closer to a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown. I lost in the fourth round against a player I can lose to (Nick Kyrgios), 2015 was a very bad year for me, not on grass, on most of the surfaces.

Victory for Nadal over his fellow left-hander would take him into a 35th Grand Slam quarterfinal. Also Simona Halep's conqueror, Su-Wei Hsieh, was defeated 6-4 6-1 by Dominika Cibulkova.

Rafael Nadal on Monday reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time since 2011.

An eight-time victor of the men's singles at the All England Club, Federer was an overwhelming favorite against the 22nd seed and never looked like falling victim to a huge upset. That it happened to be in straights, it helps me for the season and to save energy for the rest of the tournament. "After she was complaining, they were talking in Chinese, whatever language".

When asked what it would take to beat Nadal and Federer, Murray told the BBC: 'I think Novak could beat both of them. "But it never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision".
