(AFP) – World number one Rafael Nadal reached his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2011 with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 win over Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic on Monday.

Our champ will face either Juan Martin del Potro, the fifth seed from Argentina, or unseeded Gilles Simon of France for a place in the semi-finals.

It will be Rafa’s 35th appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final as he continues his bid to win an 18th major title.

    Rafa has been looking so relaxed and confident on court and I really like the way he’s moving He’s also coming to the net more often to finish off points. I have good feelings about him at this Wimbledon. This is his time!

    Rafa is too cute. In his presser he said he would be VERY excited to play Roger in the final if he makes it that far. Reaching the final would show that he is playing well.

    Rafa has always maintained to be the best you have to play the best. Yes, he wants to win Wimby but he said it would be easier if he could play a different opponent.

    I still think Rafa will win, with or without Roger on the opposite side of the net.

    RAFA ROCKS
