No. 2 seed Nadal, a two-time champion, tries to get back to the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the first time since 2011, meeting 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic, while No. 12 Djokovic, who's won Wimbledon three times, meets 40th-ranked Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation.

Federer's 175th win from 200 career grass-court matches saw him overtake Jimmy Connors as the most successful male player on the surface.

Nadal has also impressed in SW19, however, and will win his 18th Grand Slam if he comes out on top at the All England Club.

"But at the end I felt like it was just a couple games, my service games, long games where I wasn't able to quite finish it off. I don't know how far I will go in this tournament, but I'm confident with my game at this time", the Argentine said.

Djokovic goes into his match fuming at what he claimed was unfair treatment meted out to him from the Centre Court crowd on Saturday as he dumped out Kyle Edmund, Britain's last singles hope. Federer has been the dominant player on grass on the men's circuit for more than a decade, but Nadal has experience of beating the Swiss legend on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

All three players were warming up for "Manic Monday", when all fourth-round matches in the men's and women's draws will take place after Sunday's rest day.

The world No.1 looked in ominous touch throughout the first two sets.

"That's what makes me great: I always play everyone at their greatest, so I have to be greater".
