(LONDON) – 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. The eight-time champion lost just five points in a 16-minute first set but faced break points for the first time in this year's tournament, saving all four. Later on Monday, Rafael Nadal also extended his streak of not dropping a set in Wimbledon. The second seed defeated Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court. Nadal, a two-time Wimbledon champion, reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinals since 2011, when he was runner-up Novak Djokovic in 2011. Also advancing to the quarterfinals were American John Isner, No. 13 Milos Raonic and Kevin Anderson, who will play Federer. Others advancing to the men's quarterfinals are No. 24 Kei Nishikori, while the match between No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon was suspended due to darkness and will resume today.
