Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro earned himself a chance to set the record straight against Rafael Nadal after sealing a place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday.
Del Potro, who made more than 20 unforced errors in the set, made hard work of winning the tiebreak, clinching it 7-5 on the seventh set point when Simon put a return high and wide and the Argentine roared in celebration.
The odds are stacked against Anderson who will be playing in his first last-eight match at the All England Club while Federer is in his 16th.
Del Potro is in his first quarter-final at the tournament since 2013 when he reached the semi-final. The Spaniard is hoping his old rival, and eight-time champion, gets knocked out before that.
After Wimbledon's official Twitter account asked for a rating of Federer's shot, the ICC replied with an updated version of their batting rankings, placing the Swiss at the same place he is seeded at Wimbledon - No. 1.
