We are still here - Federer and Nadal relishing Centre Court reunion

Rafael Nadal eases into the Wimbledon quarter-finals

He went on to discuss the prospect of facing Djokovic for a ticket to the final.

Nadal is a sparkling 6-0 against Federer at the French Open, but just 1-2 at Wimbledon. "He was dictating the play from the baseline", Djokovic told Wimbledon.com after the match. That said, this is the furthest Bautista Agut has gone in a grand slam event. "I think that's why I play that flat". I think because I played since I was very young with a very heavy racquet, and that means if I would play with a lot of spin, I could not move the ball, no?

"I had planned to be in Ibiza right now".

Nadal simplified his challenge immensely by getting an early break of Querrey's serve, the 6-foot-6 American's most potent weapon, and serving exceptionally well himself to advance, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2.

Pella had spent six hours longer on court to reach his first Grand Slam quarter-final and looked tired as he dropped serve at the start of the second set - that proving enough for Bautista Agut to move to within a set of victory. Nadal owns 18, two behind Federer's all-time record haul.

"Number two, I'm not sure, were they as talented as Rafa, Novak, and myself and others?"

"Well", the 31-year-old Bautista Agut said, "it feels better to be here in London".

The pair will play each other for the 40th time in the semi-finals on Friday but the first at the All England Club since Nadal's famous final victory over five sets in 2008.

But, Correio de Manha suggest that the Premier League heavyweights are yet to present a formal bid for the Portuguese worldwide . The Portuguese is believed to be one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's main targets yet a transfer is struggling to be completed.

However, Bautista Agut got a break to lead 3-1 in the fourth and held 29-year-old Pella at bay to close out the match and dash his opponent's hopes of becoming only the third Argentinian man to reach the last four at Wimbledon.

Every tennis player will be glued to their TV when Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal meet again at Wimbledon, according to three-time champion Boris Becker.

"The only thing - and probably the only reason why we're able to be where we are - is because we love the game", Nadal said. "I know people always hype it up in a big way", said Federer.

JL: I'm sticking with my original pick from the beginning of the tournament: Roger Federer.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will face off at the Wimbledon Championships after 11 years.

In a career illuminated by landmarks, he became the first man to register 100 match wins at a single Slam when he came back from a set down to beat Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals.

It's an even more galling statistic considering Federer had already become men's tennis's all-time grand slam title leader with 15 of his now 20 majors before his 28th birthday. Yeah, a hundred wins here at Wimbledon. Last year, he was beaten in five sets by Djokovic in the semifinals. And it's the fourth time they'll play at Centre Court; Federer leads 2-1. "I had a tough time holding serve, and in the last two sets I made a lot of mistakes".

"It is the biggest match of the year because you're talking about two greats of the game".
