London: Six-time champion Roger Federer recovered from losing the first set to move into the Wimbledon quarter-finals with a 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 victory over Russia's Mikhail Youzhny on Monday.

Federer made serene progress through his first three matches at the All England Club without dropping a single set, but the third seed was unable to preserve that record against Youzhny on Court One.

The 29-year-old lost the opening set of the match in a tie-break, although he wasn't too concerned about that as he quickly recovered his composure to see off the tenacious 18th seed and set up a last eight clash against France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
