 Roger Federer secured a spot for the 2007 Wimbledon quarterfinals without a play, after his opponent Tommy Haas withdrew from the competition due to injury.

Roger Federer to the Wimbledon quarterfinals A lucky break for Roger Federer when Tommy Haas withdrew from the Wimbledon on Sunday with a torn stomach muscle. The 13th-seeded Tommy Haas was scheduled to play Federer on Monday. Because the very disappointer Haas withdrew from the tournament before the game, Federer will get no credit for a victory and his record will stay at 31 straight wins at Wimbledon.

 Timmy Haas received the injury during his Friday match against Dmitry Tursunov, and is expected to be sidelined for at least a month. The 29-year-old German has been plagued by injuries in the last few years, and the 2007 Wimbledon was first tournament since he left during the opener of the Masters Series event in May with a shoulder injury.

 In the last eight, Federer will face either Juan Carlos Ferrero or Janko Tipsarevic.

 Roger Federer continues to be the bookmakers' favorite to win the 2007 Wimbledon outright. According to the U.K. sportsbook Bet365 online, Roger Federer has the odds on winning at 2/7, followed by Rafael Nadal with odds 9/2. The betting odds on Andy Roddick have been upgraded to 12/1 from 14/1 previously.
