Anderson through to first Wimbledon quarterfinal

Wimbledon Day 5 Live

Even by Federer's stratospheric standards, the first set was a little absurd. Speaking about how his game perfectly suits the court condition at the All England Club, Federer said: 'Maybe it's that it helps my slice.

Like a vintage Rolls Royce, Roger Federer has cruised into his 16th Wimbledon quarter-final with another imperious centre-court display at the All England Club.

Russia's Ekaterina Makarova defied second round victim Wozniacki's churlish prediction that she wouldn't progress further in the tournament by reaching the last 16.

Federer will next play another Frenchman, Gael Monfils, or South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson.

The 32-year-old, who recently clinched his eleventh Roland Garros title in Paris, will next face Czech player Jiri Vesely to book his berth in the quarter-final of the Championship.

Over the past week none of Roger Federer's opponents needed to play on a court with a retractable roof as Wimbledon has been roasting in 30 degrees Celsius temperatures.

Vaccine against HIV on the horizon after 'promising' drug test results
Scientists use these initial phases of clinical trials to determine the best dosage to use and to see whether a vaccine is safe. To do this, they recruited 393 healthy, HIV-uninfected adults (aged 18 to 50 years) between February and October 2015.

Federer had to deal with his first break point of the tournament in the next game but passed the test with an ace as he wrapped up the first set having lost just five points. He rarely drops service and tends to win points on the first serve rather than wasting effort and going to a second.

Nadal, whose 17 Grand Slam titles are eclipsed by Federer's 20 and the 23 owned by Williams, did not disappoint in the late afternoon sunshine as he dissected fellow left-hander Vesely with a typically rumbustious display.

Had the Swiss not squandered four break points in the opening game of the second set, which lasted nearly as long as the entire opener, Federer would probably have not needed an hour and 45 minutes to get back into the locker room.

She next faces Italy's Camila Giorgi who saved a match point to beat Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-2.

"They have been a positive four matches, I haven't played on grass for a year and I'm hoping to keep enjoying it". He could not quite make it to a tie-break, though, with Federer breaking for 6-5 and then serving out the set. I just feel like it's not really what you do in a practice with other guys. Here he was playing around with Mannarino but the drop in pace allowed the 22nd seed to get a foothold in the match.

On No. 1 Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic faces Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation.
