Federer cruises into fourth round

London, United Kingdom: Defending champion Roger Federer eased into the Wimbledon fourth round on Friday with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-2 win over Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff.

Federer took his consecutive sets won at Wimbledon to 29 in what was his 200th career grass court match.

The eight-time champion will face French 22nd seed Adrian Mannarino on Monday for a place in the quarter-finals.

"I was happy to stay clam and finish off the job. I thought I did very well today," said the 36-year-old 20-time Slam winner.

"I created more chances in the second set and was always able to stay pretty clean on my own service games."
