Nadal enters Wimbledon quarter-finals for the seventh time

Wimbledon 2019 Roger Federer Rafael Nadal headline Day 6 Live Stream match details and where to watch

Nadal's coach Francisco Roig claimed the third seed was "playing without any weaknesses" at the grand slam following a brilliant display against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in round three, and the 18-time major victor was at his scintillating best in Monday's tie.

In second place is his agnoletti Serena Williams won 337 times.

And in this kind of form - after seeing off Nick Kyrgios and thrashing Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer should be anxious.

We will remind, this year Roger won his 100th professional tournament. His opponent will be unseeded Joao Sousa, who needed five sets to defeat Dan Evans of Britain 4-6, 6-4, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 to become the first Portuguese to make the fourth round at the Championship."He's a super risky opponent against everybody".

Nadal, 33, said: "It was a solid match". For me, both decisions are good.

"For me the first day I have been playing in the Court 1".

Until this year, the only Portuguese to create a racket, literally, in the singles at Wimbledon was Michelle Larcher de Brito.

Rafael Nadal on Monday prevailed over Joao Sousa with a 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 win to extend his victory record at Wimbledon to 52 matches, one more than the legendary Bjorn Borg.

Having pulled level on his serve after going 1-0 down in the third set, Nadal came out on top in a 20-shot rally with a sublime cross-court backhand before breaking with the next point.

However, while Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Nadal have not been away from the main two showcourts throughout these championships, Australia's French Open champion Barty found herself relegated to Court 2 for the second time in four matches despite being the world's top-ranked woman.

He will next play either Sam Querrey or Tennys Sandgren in what will be his 39th appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final.
