The Big Three : Federer, Djokovic, Nadal into the last eight


With all 16 fourth-round singles matches on the schedule, the seventh day of Wimbledon is often called Manic Monday.

But the men’s marquee matches were more meh than manic. The so-called Big Three of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, showing no signs of slowing down, easily dispatched their opponents to advance to the quarterfinals without seeming to break a sweat.

That led to obvious questions about the staying power of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal, who have won the past 10 consecutive grand slam events despite being well into their 30s.
