Roger Federer, who will face either Novak Djokovic or Florian Mayer should he defeat Mikhail Youzhny, netted his 10th consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinals appearance (33rd straight quarterfinals showing at a major) yesterday with a four set 7-6, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 victory over Xavier Malissee.
His dispatching of the Belgium player meant a 14th career meeting with the 33rd ranked Youzhny. Federer, while no doubt saying otherwise, had to be pleased with that development. The Swiss master is 13-0 against Youzhny, having beaten him on hard, clay, and grass courts.
Tomorrow will mark the second time the two have squared off at Wimbledon as Youzhny took Federer to four sets (6-7, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3) in the round of 16 at last year’s event. The pair has faced each other two times already this season, with Fed earning straight sets victories over the 30 year old Moscow native at Dubai and Halle.
For Youzhny, who defeated Denis Istomin 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6, 7-6 in the fourth round, tomorrow will mark his first ever showing at the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
