Federer reaches 50th Grand Slam quarter-final
Roger Federer reached his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final and 15th at Wimbledon on Monday with a 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 win over Grigor Dimitrov.
Seven-time Wimbledon champion Federer will face either Canada’s Milos Raonic, the sixth seed, or German 10th seed Alexander Zverev for a place in the semi-finals.
Raonic defeated Federer in the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 2016.
Federer, 35, is also the second oldest man to make the quarter-finals at Wimbledon behind Ken Rosewall who was 39 when he reached the last-eight in 1971.
“I’m thrilled to be back in the quarters again,” said Federer who took his record over Dimitrov to 6-0.
“It’s very special to be in a 15th quarter-final here.”
