LONDON -- Lking in fine form after two days of rest, Roger Federer equaled Jimmy Connors Open-era record by reaching his 14th Wimbledon quarterfinal.Federer, a seven-time champion at the All England Club, has not dropped a set in the tournament through four matches after beating unseeded American Steve Johnson 6-2, 6-3, 7-5 at Centre Court on Monday.I would have never thought that I was going to win the first four matches in straight sets, so Im extremely pleased, Federer said. The matches might be tough, but then the rest in between [is] great.The victory gave Federer his 306th match win in a Grand Slam and put him into his 48th quarterfinal at a major, three wins away from becoming the first man to win eight Wimbledon titles. He is tied with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw with seven.You can always, always lose the tournament in the first week, but never win it, Federer said. So I did a lot of things right the first week and from now, you really want to -- or you have to -- start playing your best tennis.Lking fresh and sharp after two days off, Federer broke Johnson five times and was in control throughout a match that lasted just over 90 minutes -- one of 16 mens and womens fourth-round matches on the schedule.I didnt think it was as easy as it maybe lked, the third-seeded Federer said.Federer hadnt played since Friday, when he was the only man to finish a third-round match, and he was able to rest over the weekend while the tournament cleared up a backlog of matches caused by a rainy first week.He next faces No. 9 Marin Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, who advanced when Kei Nishikori retired from their fourth-round match.The fifth-seeded Japanese player was trailing 6-1, 5-1 when he decided to stop the match, giving Cilic a spot in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.Nishikori warmed up for Wimbledon by playing on grass in Halle, Germany, but he pulled out before his second match because of a rib injury.If Federer gets to the final, he could face No. 2-seeded Andy Murray, who handily defeated No. 15 Nick Kyrgios 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 in the last match Monday on Centre Court to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the ninth successive year.Sam Querrey suffered no hangover from his win over No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic as he beat Nicolas Mahut of France 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-4 on Court 18.Querrey is the first American man to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Mardy Fish in 2011 and the first to make it that far at any Grand Slam since?John Isner and Andy Roddick?at the 2011 US Open. The No. 28 seed will next face either sixth-seeded?Milos Raonic or 11th-seeded David Goffin.In other mens play, No. 6 Milos Raonic came back from a two-set deficit to win for the first time in his career, beating No. 11 David Goffin of Belgium 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4; No. 12?Jo-Wilfried Tsonga?of France advanced when his countryman, No. 7 Richard Gasquet, retired with an apparent back injury at 4-2 down in the first set; and No. 32 Lucas Pouille of France downed No. 19 Bernard Tomic 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 10-8.

Thommo believes Klopp needs to strengthen but is confident they will be able to attract the quality capable of making them a title-challenging force next season. Jurgen Klopp has led Liverpl into the Europa League semi-finals this season Speaking ahead of Saturdays Premier League clash with Newcastle, the former Reds captain told Sky Sports: They were absolutely magnificent against Everton and are lking as gd as anyone at this moment in time. Theyre moving the ball quickly and defending far better.The top four should be the aim but theres no reason that a push for title if Klopp strengthens the spine of the side.Id like to see a couple of quality first-team players added rather than six or seven that are going to compete for places. Thommo cant see Christian Benteke at Anfield next season Joel Matip is coming in a centre-back but I think, with Christian Benteke and Mario Balotelli probably leaving, another top striker and central midfielder are needed.ddddddddddddThats where Klopp comes in because hes a big draw and players from all over Europe will have been watching the scenes from against Dortmund and thinking to themselves that they want to play under that man in that atmosphere.Thommo has also called for Joe Allen to be handed an extension to his contract, which has just over a year to run. Get Joe Allen signed up sharpish, says Thommo One thing I want to see Klopp do quickly is get Joe Allen signed up on a new deal, he added.He was brilliant against Bournemouth and whenever hes come on, against Dortmund and Everton, hes been terrific.
