The duo of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer were both in action on Monday as both look forward to earning another Grand Slam title to their names.
To book their place in the quarter-final, Nadal saw off Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 while Federer triumphed over Adrian Mannarino 6-0, 7-5, 6-4, but it was Nadal who drew the loudest cheer of the day.
But according to Wimbledon statistics, Federer’s victory didn’t attract much noise like that of Nadal.
However, the cheers came during Nadal’s fourth-round victory that qualified him for the All England Club quarter-finals for the first time since 2011.
The loudest point of the first hour came when the Spaniard sprinted to the baseline in his trademark style just before the start of the match, with the crowd reaching 91 decibels.
Nadal will face Juan Martin del Potro in the quarter-finals while Federer will face South African Kevin Anderson.
Meanwhile, Juan Martin del Potro advanced to the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time since 2013 by beating Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5).
The match is the only fourth-round contest to be carried over to Tuesday and it lasted 4 hours, 24 minutes, making it the longest men’s singles match of the tournament.
