London, July 3 (MNN) Roger Federer continued his chase for the ninth Wimbledon title in the men’s category as he recorded a 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Cameron Norrie in round three at the Centre Court here on Saturday.

The Swiss player is into the second week of The Championships for the eighteenth time.

Federer had earlier defeated Richard Gasquet 7-6 (1), 6-1, 6-4 in his second-round match on Thursday to set up a clash with Norrie.

Federer had survived a scare at the start of Wimbledon after rival Frenchman Adrian Mannarino retired at 6-4, 6-7(3), 3-6, 6-2 at the start of the fifth set, unable to put any weight on his right leg following a slip behind the baseline.

Federer had left the French Open midway over fitness issues after reaching the fourth round at Roland Garros, where Novak Djokovic had emerged the title winner.
