Imperious Rafael Nadal powers his way through into Wimbledon quarter-finals

Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal was in blistering form on Centre Court as he imperiously breezed past Joao Sousa and into the quarter-finals.

Sousa had been a surprise package, beating 2017 finalist Marin Cilic in the second round.

However, he was absolutely powerless to prevent Nadal from powering to 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in just 104 minutes.

Nadal, who has two Wimbledon titles to his name, will play either Sam Querrey or Tennys Sandgren for a place in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Nadal’s fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut is also into the last eight after he overcame Beniot Paire 6-3, 7-5, 6-2.

He will now face either Guido Pella or former runner-up Milos Raonic.
