Eight-time champion Roger Federer booked his place in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon on Monday. 

The 39-year-old beat Italian Lorenzo Sonego in straight sets 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 on centre court.

It was the Swiss player's 118th time to win a match at Wimbledon.

Speaking to the BBC afterward, fan favourite Federer was particularly grateful for the support of the crowd.

"I heard congratulations at the end of the question - the rest was lost! Tricky conditions inside and out, and against Lorenzo who is always dangerous.

"But I felt after the first set I was able to control things.

"I couldn't be more excited to be in the quarters. Thank you guys for coming out and supporting and making it special."

Elsewhere on 'Manic Monday' world number one Novak Djokovic made it through to his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final after easing past Chilean Cristian Garin in straight sets.

While sixth seed Alexander Zverev is out after he lost 3-2 to Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime in their last 16 encounter.

And second seed Daniil Medvedev lead Hubert Hurkacz of Poland 2-1 when their game was suspended late in the evening due to rain.

In the Women's draw, world number one Ash Barty made it through to the quarter-finals for the very first time in her career.

She beat French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova in straight sets 7-5, 6-3.

Barty was forced to withdraw from Roland Garros last month due to injury.

2018 champion Angelique Kerber beat 17-year-old Coco Gauff in straight sets on centre court to know the youngster out 6-4, 6-4.

And second seed Aryna Sabalenka will face Tunisia's Ons Jabeur next after their victories in the last-16.

Jabeur came from a set down to beat Polish number seven seed Iga Swiatek 7-5, 6-1, 6-1.

While Aryna Sabalenka saw off Elena Rybakina in three sets.
