ROGER Federer reached his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final with a 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 win over Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round.


Seven-time Wimbledon champion Federer will face either Canada’s Milos Raonic, the sixth seed, or German 10th seed Alexander Zverev for a place in the semi-finals.

Raonic defeated Federer in the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 2016.
Federer, 35, is also the second oldest man to make the quarter-finals at Wimbledon behind Ken Rosewall who was 39 when he reached the last-eight in 1971.
