Federer beats Sonego to reach the quarter-final in Wimbledon 2021. Eight-time champion at SW19, Roger Federer, came through without dropping a set in his fourth-round clash with Italian Lorenzo Sonego, but it was a far from the comfortable win with the 23rd seed having wowed the Centre Court fans with his attacking and unpredictable brand of tennis. Federer looked composed and secure throughout as he completed a straight-sets win, and he is into the quarter-finals. Roger Federer continued his Wimbledon comeback with a straight-sets, 7-5, 6-4, 6-2, win over Lorenzo Sonego on 'Manic Monday' to reach the quarter-finals.
