Rafael Nadal into Wimbledon 2019 quarter-finals with Joao Sousa win

Novak Djokovic shares thoughts on top ten players losing in Wimbledon

The eight-time champion breezed past Italy's Matteo Berrettini 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 in just 74 minutes to make sure of a spot in his 55th quarter-final at the Slams.

The big-serving Californian has previously claimed the scalps of Andy Murray and Djokovic at the All England Club and if he can serve out of his skin, it is just possible he could add Nadal to that list.

At 37, he is the oldest man to reach the last eight at the majors since 39-year-old Jimmy Connors at the 1991 U.S. Open.

Whoever battles through that side of the draw is likely to find defending champion and four-time victor Novak Djokovic waiting in the final. Federer is 7-3 against Nishikori, but lost to the eighth-seeded Japanese player on a hard court at last year's ATP Finals.

All three men have dropped just one set so far and will be big favourites to progress.

Long-time rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic look to join Nadal there when they both play later on Monday.

"I think the best guys now are fully engaged, they know exactly what to expect from the court and the conditions", said second seed Federer. Nishikori defeated the great Swiss in the ATP Finals last year, ending a drought which had stretched to nearly five years.

Djokovic, who didn't face a break point in the entire match, moves into his 11th Wimbledon quarterfinal and will next come up against Belgian 21st seed David Goffin.

Consulate official, however, the meeting was denied, which is a violation of the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations . Allegedly, a prisoner who is in close proximity to Rocky has mental issues and slams his head against the concrete wall.

"My plan always is to reach the final stages at Grand Slams", said Djokovic, who converted five of nine break points.

"Wimbledon has been a special tournament that has motivated me throughout my life".

In the quarterfinal, 18-time Grand Slam champion Nadal will face United States world number 69 Sam Querrey, who beat countryman Tennys Sandgren in four sets on Monday.

"A lot of positive things out there".

The final scoreline read 6-1 6-2 6-2. The first quarterfinal match in that stadium will be between Roberto Bautista Agut and Guido Pella.

The 31-year-old has beaten Djokovic twice already this year and is due to face him again in the semi-finals.

Paire said he was seriously under-par. But for me, I struggle the most against Roger.

Bautista Agut, who has now defeated Paire seven times in seven meetings, also made the quarter-finals at the Australian Open in January.
