Federer took his tally of consecutive sets won on London's hallowed grass courts to 32 with a 6-0 7-5 6-4 dispatch of unsafe French left-hander Adrian Mannarino.
The eight-time champion lost just five points in a 16-minute first set but faced break points for the first time in this year's tournament, saving all four.
If Federer beats Mannarino (and what a shock it would be if he does not), he will have his first properly tough examination against Gaël Monfils, who has found some prime form in an entertaining run, or the 2017 US Open finalist Kevin Anderson, who is playing up to his eighth seeding.
"It was an important victory as since 2011 I have not been in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon". The Swiss only sees positives from it.

"At the same time, I have been in that position a couple of times in my career". The 27-year-old Canadian, runner-up to Andy Murray in 2016, triumphed 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2.
"It's a pretty exciting opportunity to play Federer here at Wimbledon", said Anderson, who has never beaten the 20-time Grand Slam champion in four attempts.
