Roger Federer cruised into the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for a record 17th time after notching up his 99th win on the hallowed lawns of the All England Club on Monday. Federer looks to be in razor-sharp form heading into his quarterfinal encounter with Japanese Number 1, Kei Nishikori.
The Swiss maestro strolled past 17th seed Matteo Berrettini in the previous round. The Italian could not live up to expectations and looked like a deer caught in the headlights for the most part. Federer taught the young Italian a lesson, vanquishing the 23-year-old's challenge in just 73 minutes.
In the last 8, Federer will now have to overcome the challenge posed by 8th seed Nishikori. The Japanese has also had a good season so far, having made it to the quarterfinals of the Australian and French Open.
In Wimbledon, Nishikori has dropped just one set en route to the quarterfinals. He battled hard against Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin in the previous round, dropping a set but holding on for the victory at the end.
Nishikori enters this contest in fine form and quite fresh which means Federer will have to be at his best if he is to progress to the semi-finals and set up a potential clash with Rafael Nadal.
Nishikori boasts of three victories against the 37-year-old and will fancy his chances of notching up another upset,
The Japanese can be a tricky opponent but the Swiss is the heavy favourite going into this match.
