Swiss’ Roger Federer, seeded four, cruised into the quarter-finals of Wimbledon with a comfortable straight sets win over Tommy Robredo of Spain.

Seventeen-time Grand Slam winner, Federer, was keen to avoid the disappointments of last year’s US Open, when he lost to Robredo, dominating their fourth round clash at SW19 before winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion next face compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka, who beat Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 7-6, 7-6, 6-3.

The reigning Australian Open champion overcame Lopez in an ill-tempered match, which led to the fifth seed having a heated debate at its conclusion.

However, Federer is relishing another opportunity highlighting his credentials as the greatest tennis player alive. The 32-year-old has won Wawrinka in 13 of their previous 15 meetings.

“For a small country we are doing well in sporting teams,” said Federer. “It will be amazing to play Stan in the quarter-finals here, hopefully on Centre Court, because things like that don’t happen too often in Swiss Sport.

“I’m pleased with the way I am playing. I’m moving well, serving well and doing all the things right that you need to be doing to go deep into this tournament.

“I am healthy, things are where I want them to be, but the quarter-finals is really where the tournament starts.”
