Swiss Rodger Federer is in his 50th Grand Slam quarter finals after winning against Grigor Dimitrov on Centre Court.
The seven time Wimbledon champion beat Dimitrov in straight sets recording a 6-4 6-2 6-4 win.
Federer, 35, who is 18 time Grand slam champion is yet to drop a set at the 2017 Wimbledon and said this after beating the Bulgarian; “I thought it was a terrific match and I didn’t expect it to go that easy for me”.
The win means Rodger Federer will face Milos Raonic from Canada, the same opponent who eliminated the Swiss in last year’s semi finals. Milos Raonic who lost the final to Andy Murray last year beat Alexander Zverev of Germany in five sets to reach the quarters.
Federer said about his next opponent;
“I’ve got to bring the intensity, the focus that I’ve shown throughout this tournament and the mentality on the serve”. “I’ve got to make very few wrong decisions and understand what to do at what stage.
“Then on the return, to keep going for it, keep staying aggressive, have a positive attitude. I do believe good things can happen”, he added.
