ITS Staff: In men’s singles fourth round action, top seed Novak Djokovic escaped upset on Tuesday to clinch a spot in the quarter-finals. The two-time champion defeated South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 6-7(6), 6-7(6), 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 in three hours and 47 minutes on Court No. 1 and will now play ninth seed Marin Cilic who booked his place in the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory over World No. 105 Denis Kudla, the last American standing in the men’s draw.

 

Second-seed Roger Federer cruised past No. 20 seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 to reach his record 13th Wimbledon quarterfinal appearance. After the match the 7-time Wimbledon winner said, “It was a good match I got off to a good start. Roberto wasn't at his very best. Roberto hurt himself in the middle of the second set. Still, he was out there and he was actually still moving okay so I had to put him away which I was able to do.”
