Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer reached his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final with a straight-set win over Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov.

  • The 35-year-old, who has yet to drop a set, recorded a 6-4 6-2 6-4 victory in one hour and 37 minutes.

  • "I thought it was a terrific match and I didn't expect it to go that easy for me," said the Swiss world number five.

  • Federer will now play Canada's Milos Raonic, who defeated him in last year's semi-finals.

  • Raonic, beaten by Andy Murray in the final last year, is into the quarter-finals after a hard-fought five-set win over 10th seed Alexander Zverev of Germany.

  • "I've got to bring the intensity, the focus that I've shown throughout this tournament and the mentality on the serve," said the 18-time Grand Slam champion of Wednesday's last-eight encounter.

  • "I've got to make very few wrong decisions and understand what to do at what stage.

  • "Then on the return, to keep going for it, keep staying aggressive, have a positive attitude. I do believe good things can happen.
