Roger Federer celebrates

Defending champion Roger Federer brushed aside Jan-Lennard Struff to reach the second week at Wimbledon.

The eight-time champion extended his streak at SW19 to 29 consecutive sets as he beat the German 6-3, 7-5, 6-2 in one hour and 36 minutes.

Federer will face Frenchman Adrian Mannarino for a place in the quarter-final after the 22nd seed held off NextGen star Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3.

Playing in his 200th Tour level match on grass, Swiss legend Federer made it 175 match wins on the surface with one break of serve in each of the first two sets and two in the third more than good enough for the victory.

Meanwhile, Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam in 14 years when he beat Thomas Fabbiano, winning 6-2, 6-1, 6-4.

The 19-year-old will face big-serving American John Isner in the last 16 after the ninth seed beat Radu Albot 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.
