Djokovic relegates Federer in Wimbledon quarter-final line-up

Roger Federer is the favorite at the 2018 Wimbledon, but Rafael Nadal is most likely to win

But that third-round fixture was a natural, with a three-time champion playing the British No 1. As you may have seen from my comment on the previous post I was lucky enough to watch this one live on Centre so this is a slightly different format here as I didn't take any notes to do a quick match recap but my thoughts are Fed looked top class.

Otherwise, we're going to be in a repeat of the 2008 final when Federer played Rafael Nadal.' Speaking on BBC, Henman added: 'Everybody is different and he [Nadal] is strong and very intense.

The Swiss great defeated Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 in the fourth round of the Wimbledon 2018 on Monday.

Monfils and Anderson have yet to get to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, although the French shotmaker may just be the slight favorite as he has a 5-0 winning record over the big South African.

The Japanese 24th seed is contesting his maiden Wimbledon quarter-final after finally overcoming his own wretched run with injury and backing up his third-round win over Nick Kyrgios with a fighting four-set victory over Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis.

Should Federer continue his relentless march towards a 21st grand slam crown, and ninth at Wimbledon, he is destined to meet a serving monster in the last four.
