Roger Federer claims his eighth crown at Wimbledon, claims Wikipedia!

The brown-out patch behind the baseline is a visible reminder of lawn tennis' transition to a baseline game.

As for Federer in the tournament, the Swiss genius became the last man to book a berth in the last 16 with a 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-4 victory over German number 27 Mischa Zverev.

Federer has been battling a cold but is confident he will be fully restored to health by Monday. I can control only what's on my side, in my team, what I do to prepare myself the best way that I can before the match.

That came as a surprise admission from an 18-time grand slam champion aiming to win a record eighth title at the All England Club.

As so often the case, Federer struck at the opportune moment and secured an early break in the second set, and looked routinely untroubled on his own serve to give him a two-set advantage.

"I think accuracy is nearly as important as pace once you get over 120 (mph)", Federer said of serving. "I was efficient on my serve, created a bunch of opportunities". "And for the first time in my career to have back-to-back years where I have made the second week is exciting".

'So, yeah, I mean, I'm pretty positive.

Federer has yet to drop a set in the first three rounds, beating Alexander Dolgopolov, in the first round after the Ukranian retired during the second set, with Federer leading 6-3 3-0. That's the quickest path to the fourth round of any of the Big Four.

"It's important to get through the first week with a good feeling and I think I got that", Federer said. So far every time we saw each other, we've been joking around in the locker room or warm-up area.

"I'm very happy now to sit back, relax a day and come back strong, hopefully on Monday".

Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov has prime billing on Centre Court against seven-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer and while he is relishing that prospect he savored the silence of Sunday.

Today he is up a against 5ft 9in Dudi Sela, the Israeli journeyman who has already...

The 25-year-old Vandeweghe reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, where she lost to runner-up Venus Williams.

But if Murray can overcome his recent hip injury, the Scot will also be a serious contender for the title when he walks through the hallowed corridors of Centre Court. "I was in pain from the start and played until I felt I really couldn't move anymore". "He's at the ideal age right now". Kerber faces Shelby Rogers of the US, while Muguruza plays Sorana Cirstea of Romania.

One of the best front-runners Wimbledon has ever seen, streaked through a love hold placing a high backhand volley into the open court for 4-1. Zverev curled an ace out wide to force the tie break.

Her next task will be to break through to the quarterfinals for the first time.

Roger Federer and his opponent slipped during their third-round match. Federer whipped 22 winners in the set more than tripling Zverev in that category.

After breaking early in the third, Federer brought out the tweener, much to the delight of the crowd - although it did not win him the point.

Three-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic roared his way into the fourth round with a 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (2) defeat of unpredictable Latvian Ernests Gulbis.
