I'll give him a mean, angry look – Zverev jokes about unsettling Federer

Wimbledon betting tips: Day 6

Three-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic roared his way into the fourth round with a 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (2) defeat of unpredictable Latvian Ernests Gulbis.

Federer has been battling a cold but is confident he will be fully restored to health by Monday. "You always sees some lobs and drop shots and passing shots".

"When he plays his best tennis, OK, you just walk around, pick up balls, hope that he's going to start missing at one point". Wimbledon is very unique because it's not played on middle Sunday.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion recorded a third successive straight-sets triumph of the opening week to diffuse the easy-on-the-eye style of Zverev and reach the last 16 at the All-England Club for a 15th time.

Match of the day Could Roger Federer be in for a tough afternoon against Mischa Zverev? "It's one of the days where you can get probably the most quality matches, both singles and doubles, men and women, that you can have throughout the entire tournament", said the Serb, a three-times Wimbledon victor.

"I'm delighted with what I achieved today", Djokovic said. "And for the first time in my career to have back-to-back years where I have made the second week is exciting". That was definitely a key moment. "I mean, good servers do usually quite well here on the grass".

If Federer is at his best and Djokovic is not, Federer will have an excellent chance to beat his rival and get to the title match. That's the quickest path to the fourth round of any of the Big Four.

The pair have met five times on the ATP tour over the course of their careers, with Gilles Muller having one win and Rafael Nadal four.

"I'm delighted with the performance today".

Meanwhile, Federer, the No. 3 seed, is scheduled to square off against 13th-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov for a place in the quarter-finals.

Federer leads 5-0 in his head-to-head against Dimitrov, a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2014. Two of those meetings came on the lawns of Wimbledon, with the players splitting the outcomes. "He is at the flawless age right now to really understand his game, he is physically very strong, and I think mentally he has really taken that next step".

"He's physically strong, he's mentally taken the next step again". British players have been in these quarter-finals of the men's and women's singles on only two occasions in the Open era.

When an attempted body serve didn't hug the hip tightly enough, Federer bolted a backhand return down the line for double break point.

Zverev was similarly untroubled in beating Austria's Sebastian Ofner 6-4 6-4 6-2. It was a pity I couldn't hold my serve. Zverev curled an ace out wide to force the tie break.

Her next task will be to break through to the quarterfinals for the first time. Dragging his opponent off the court with the slider serve wide, Federer swooped in for a forehand victor, for 4-1. However, the presence of Federer usually brings out the best in Djokovic. Federer is 4-0 in their previous matchups, taking all nine sets, including a 6-0, 6-0 victory on grass at Halle, Germany, in 2013.

The Swiss was superb in the frontcourt winning 11 of 12 trips to net.

Djokovic will use his win over Federer as a springboard, and he will also beat Murray to take the title. "I think that helped".

"I'm not that surprised because I thought that everybody this week was going to find their form, especially speaking about Andy and Novak". I'm happy she allows me to chase our dreams, because she's in it as much as I am. "Comparing to the first couple of matches and the last couple of weeks, I think this was the most focused I was on the court". "You know, it's like dead grass".
