The Swiss, eight time Wimbledon champion, has recovered some rhythm and he seems more comfortable with every match that passes. However, the second week is always the hardest and 39 year-old Federer won’t have any easy rivals from here.

Roger Federer vs Lorenzo Sonego: Head-to-head and storylines
Roger Federer and Lorenzo Sonego are little acquainted, as the Swiss won their only previous match at Roland Garros two years ago. In that encounter, when the Italian was 74 in the world, Federer crushed him in three sets 6-2, 6-4, 6-4.
This time, Sonego is 26 in the world and he’s in the best form of his career. Prior to this tournament, he had never won a match at Wimbledon (previously 0-2). Now, he just came from heading into the fourth round in a Grand Slam for the second time, after doing it in Roland Garros last year.
Sonego is one of the 10 players that are playing this round in Wimbledon for the first time. Federer is going to play this round for the 18th time in his career, the only man who has done that. Along with Novak Djokovic, they’re the only male players that remain who have won Wimbledon before.
