Fans will be witnessing Roger Federer on grass in a Grand Slam after his fourth-round exit at Roland Garros. This is going to be Federer's 22nd Wimbledon appearance, and maybe his last – if reports are to be believed. This season, Federer has played on grass twice, winning one and losing the other (Halle Open). However, making it to at least the quarter-finals most times, experts have high expectations of Federer.
Mannarino, on the other hand, Mannarino has had a rough season. He won three matches at the Mallorca Open before losing to Sam Querrey in the semi-finals. Federer will definitely have the advantage here, especially as Mannarino has never managed to beat the Swiss icon before. Here is more on the Federer vs Mannarino live streaming details -
