Roger Federer continued his smooth progress through the Wimbledon draw with a 6-4 6-2 6-4 win over his old rival David Nalbandian in the third round on Saturday.

The Swiss third seed, bidding for a record-equalling seventh title, outclassed his Argentine opponent who had beaten him eight times in their previous 18 matches.

Federer will play Spain's Nicolas Almagro or Russian Mikhail Youzhny in the last 16.
