Seven-time champion Roger Federer reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the 13th time by dismantling Roberto Bautista Agut.
Second seed Federer was close to his imperious best, employing his full range of shots to dissect his flummoxed opponent as he won 6-2 6-2 6-3.
The Swiss will next face Giles Simon for a place in the semi-finals.
He needs one more title to break the record he holds with Pete Sampras and Willie Renshaw.
Federer broke his Spanish opponent in the fifth game of the first set and again in the seventh to win it in 19 minutes.
The 33-year-old broke again in the first game of the second set before Bautista Agut called for the trainer, having hurt his ankle sliding beyond the baseline.
Federer then attacked the Spaniard’s serve early in the third to close the contest in one hour 26 minutes and move closer to a possible semi-final meeting with Andy Murray.
Federer beat the British number one in the 2012 final to win the last of those seven titles, and another potential showdown is an alluring prospect on a court that has seen the best of both men.
