WIMBLEDON, England (AP
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Roger Federer delivered another vintage Centre Court performance to reach a record-extending 17th Wimbledon quarterfinal. The 37-year-old Federer became the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal since Jimmy Connors did it at 39 at the 1991 U.S. Open.
Four-time champion Novak Djokovic is into the quarterfinals again after beating Ugo Humbert in straight sets.
Rafael Nadal reached his 39th career Grand Slam quarterfinal by beating Joao Sousa 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 on Centre Court. It was the two-time Wimbledon champion's 52nd match win at the All England Club, surpassing Bjorn Borg for eighth place on the all-time list.
Sam Querrey also advanced after winning an all-American matchup against Tennys Sandgren.
And Guido Pella came from two sets down to knock out another former finalist at Wimbledon. Pella beat 2016 runner-up Milos Ranoic to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal.
Serena Williams eased into the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the 14th time by beating Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2. Williams is looking for her eighth Wimbledon title after losing last year's final to Angelique Kerber.
Williams will next face fellow American Alison Riske (RIHS'-kee), who upset top-ranked Ash Barty earlier in the day. The loss ends a 15-match winning streak for Barty, who was coming off titles at the French Open and Birmingham and was playing her first tournament as No. 1.
Coco Gauff's Wimbledon run is over. The 15-year-old American lost to former No. 1 Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round.
