Federer took his tally of consecutive sets won on London's hallowed lawns to 32 with a 6-0 7-5 6-4 dispatch of risky French left-hander Adrian Mannarino.
"I wouldn't know that it happened in '05 and '06, I feel like these streaks just happen", he said. "You can't plan for them anyway because one point can change the outcome of a set. You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great".
"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on", said the eight-time champion after seeing off France's Adrian Mannarino in straight sets on Monday. The only different thing is that it's Federer in front of me, and he's a really good opponent.
"You always tend to play better against better players and I am happy to be back in the second week of Wimbledon".

Since he exited Wimbledon at the first-round stage past year, Anderson has enjoyed a solid return, making four finals, including his deep run at the US Open where he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal.
Federer has also won 32 consecutive sets at the grasscourt major, dating back to his semi-final defeat in 2016.
'Look, if one of us gets a crack, a few chances, we're going to have to take it.
France´s Adrian Mannarino reacts as he plays Switzerland´s Roger Federer in their men´s singles fourth round match on the seventh day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championship. The Anderson serve proved too strong in the break as the SA player claimed it 7-4. He's now won 32 straight sets, two shy of his career best in 2005-06, according to The Guardian. "That has been the surprise for me, that sometimes there is a set like this".
However, should Federer make the final on Sunday, he might not enjoy the kind of undivided love and attention he normally would from the adoring Wimbledon fans.
While the men get Tuesday off at Wimbledon, the women return for their quarterfinals.
'I'm looking forward to it and I'm definitely confident that I can keep going'.
