It was all started when leading 2-0 in the first set, Mannarino's default serve was defended by Federer in an nearly "cricket" style.

Yet the 22-year-old, playing in the last 16 for the second successive grand slam, saw his hopes severely hindered by mistakes and a sliced forehand wide gave Djokovic a pair of break points - only one of which he needed.

Federer took his tally of consecutive sets won on London's hallowed grass courts to 32 with a 6-0 7-5 6-4 dispatch of risky French left-hander Adrian Mannarino.

Top-seeded Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal on Monday with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino, seeded 22nd, of France.

He then faces either Milos Raonic or John Isner before he gets a shot at his ninth Wimbledon title.

"That's how important Wimbledon is to me and to us over here". "I was inspired. I wanted to play exactly like him and do the same results".

"He started to play better from the baseline and I made a couple of mistakes with the game I lost with my serve. That's the thing. I can be here, I can't come here and say, 'no, of course I want to play against the best players'".

"It was crucial for him to stay in the match at the beginning of the second set and then it got tougher", said 20-time major victor Federer.

With England still in contention to reach the final in Moscow, it has been suggested the football tournament could prove a significant distraction as fans at Wimbledon try to keep up with events in the Russian capital.

However, Federer has held all of his 55 service games this year and last dropped serve in the semi-finals in 2017 - 81 service games ago.
