Five years have passed since the Swiss master denied Britain's great hope in their only previous title match at the All England Club.

He grabbed the crucial break at 4-4 in the third set, however, before serving out to seal his passage into the last eight. "I can look at this quarter-final in a totally relaxed fashion", Federer said. I wouldn't rule Murray out. "I'd love to see that final", Hewitt said.

Nonetheless, Murray will be delighted to be going up against a player who is seeded 24th at this stage of the tournament; Federer certainly has it tougher against Raonic.

The big-serving Canadian sixth seed Raonic, beaten finalist to Murray a year ago, has beaten Federer just three times in their 12 meetings, but those include their last two clashes, most recently in the 2016 Wimbledon semi-finals. Berdych upset him at 2010 Wimbledon and 2013 Rome. "This year, the way he played in Australia was pretty incredible - after six months out he can flick a switch and start lighting it up again", Hewitt said of Federer's title run in Melbourne in January.

"Everyone likes different things so it's good to have players to choose from".

"This is something that we have talked about at Wimbledon for the last 10 years".

Seven-time champion Roger Federer said that if both players complained about the state of a court then their concerns should be taken seriously.

Fifth seeded Wozniacki is yet to win a Grand Slam and has failed to make it to the quarters here in all her 11 attempts.

In a briefing with reporters Thursday, Riske - who generally likes to compete on grass, the most specialized of tennis' three main surfaces - likened a part of the court to "ice".

As for Murray's prospects, Hewitt is more optimistic now than he was prior to the tournament, when for a couple of days at least there was doubt over whether the world number one would be fit to compete. "But there wasn't a doubt in my mind". "Roger's been the best player, I think, this year, hands down, when he's been on court", said the sixth-seeded Raonic, a Canadian who was the 2016 runner-up to Andy Murray at Wimbledon. He does everything right.

With the victory, Vandeweghe moved into her second Wimbledon quarter-final.

"He's a true professional and it's not easy turning up as the defending champion if you're under a bit of an injury cloud and being able to block that out". I came up with some good shots on the run and made it hard for him to hit loads of winners past me. 6-4, 6-4 victor against Benoit Paire of France in the last 16 on Centre Court yesterday, just hours before Rafael Nadal, the world's second best player by the rankings and a potential semi-final opponent, crashed out in a 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 15-13 five-set epic to Luxembourg's Gilles Muller on Court No 1.
