Roger Federer reached a record-extending 17th Wimbledon quarter-final as young Italian Matteo Berrettini was overwhelmed on Centre Court.
The Swiss great, bidding for a ninth title, needed just an hour and 14 minutes to seal a 6-1 6-2 6-2 win.
Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal into Wimbledon 2019 quarter-finals
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal also continued to breeze through the draw with equally-comfortable last-16 wins.
Defending champion Djokovic knocked out inexperienced Frenchman Ugo Humbert, while Nadal beat Portugal's Joao Sousa.
Serbian top seed Djokovic showed the gulf in class as he won 6-3 6-2 6-3 against world number 66 Humbert, while Nadal - only tested so far by second-round opponent Nick Kyrgios - eased to a 6-2 6-2 6-2 win over Sousa.

Experience shows as Federer and Djokovic glide through
The 'big three' of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal, who lead the all-time tally of Grand Slam victories with 53 major titles between them, demonstrated why they are still the men to beat with almost flawless performances on 'Manic Monday' - when all of the last-16 matches in the singles take place.
The illustrious trio only faced one break point between them, Federer saving it when he was already leading by two sets and a break.
Federer, 37, was the last of the three to step out on court and was arguably the most impressive as he demolished 17th seed Berrettini in a one-sided contest.
The Swiss second seed needed just 17 minutes to wrap up the first set, allowing Berrettini just four points as he rattled off the final five games.
Berrettini's service game was virtually non-existent - his first serve percentage ending up at 45% - and he wore a look of bemusement as Federer relentlessly punished him in front of a sympathetic Centre Court crowd.
"I've got into a great groove and today I was able to read his serve, get returns back in and take control from the baseline," Federer said.
Federer's cause was also helped by the Italian perhaps feeling tired after a gruelling five-set match against Diego Schwartzman in the third round, then saw Japan's eighth seed Kei Nishikori - who he plays in the quarter-finals on Wednesday - pushed to four sets by his last-16 opponent Mikhail Kukushkin.
"I think you can always lose a Grand Slam in that first week - but you can't win it. If you get through it with energy in the tank you're in a good position," Federer said.
"Five-setters are memorable and cool to play in but for the body it's nice to avoid them."
Djokovic's greater pedigree shone through as he outclassed Humbert on the 21-year-old's maiden appearance in the second week of a Grand Slam.
The 15-time Grand Slam champion broke early in the opening two sets to take control, needing a touch longer to earn the break in the third, before swatting away his young opponent in one hour and 42 minutes.
Djokovic, the top seed, only dropped 14 points on serve and took five of nine break points to set up a meeting with Belgium's 21st seed David Goffin in the last eight.
Only Poland's Hubert Hurkacz has managed to take a set off the Serb, who has wrapped up three of his opening four matches in around two hours or less.
"I don't think about trying to conserve energy to be honest, I try to focus on what needs to be done to win the match," said Djokovic, who reached his 11th quarter-final at Wimbledon.
"I was very pleased to execute the job in three sets."

Impressive Nadal sends 'loud and clear message'
Nadal has struggled to go far at Wimbledon in recent years, with fitness issues and the demands of his favoured clay-court season taking their toll on the two-time champion.
A run to the semi-finals last year, where he lost to Djokovic, was the first time he had progressed past the last 16 since reaching the 2011 final.
The Majorcan, whose movement was sharp against Sousa, underlined his credentials as one of the favourites with a clinical victory wrapped up in one hour and 45 minutes.
The quality of Nadal's performance sent a "loud and clear message to the locker room", according to three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker.
No outcome other than a comfortable Nadal win looked likely after he showed his intent by making a lightning start.
He broke twice to race into a 3-0 lead with only 10 minutes on the clock and little over a quarter of an hour later he was serving for the set.
Even Sousa, who had impressively beaten Croatia's 2017 finalist Marin Cilic and Britain's Dan Evans on his way to reaching the second week, was left applauding Nadal's brilliance in the second set before the Spaniard quickly sealed victory with an ace out wide on his first match point.
"It was a good solid match, the second serve didn't work as well as two days ago, but the rest was very positive," Nadal told BBC Sport.
"I am happy to be where I am, the body is holding well and I'm playing some good tennis."

Veterans show the young guns how it is done
With 32-year-old Djokovic and 33-year-old Nadal safely through, Federer matched them to become the fifth man aged in his thirties to reach the quarter-finals at the All England Club in 2019.
Nine over-30s reached the last 16 - the highest tally at a Grand Slam in the Open era - with unseeded American Sam Querrey, 31, and Spain's 23rd seed Roberto Bautista Agut, 31, also advancing to the last eight on Monday.
Querrey, a semi-finalist in 2017, edged out another unseeded American, Tennys Sandgren, in a 6-4 6-7 7-6 7-6 win to set up a meeting against Nadal.
Bautista Agut reached the SW19 quarter-finals for the first time with a 6-3 7-5 6-2 win over France's 28th seed Benoit Paire, while Goffin, 28, beat unseeded Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 7-6 (11-9) 2-6 6-3 6-4.
The final quarter-final spot was claimed by Argentine 26th seed Guido Pella, who sealed a five-set win over Canada's 2016 finalist Milos Raonic in fading light at 20:10 BST.
Pella, 29, broke down in tears after taking his fourth match point, clinching a 3-6 4-6 6-3 7-6 (7-3) 8-6 victory after three hours and 42 minutes to reach his first Grand Slam quarter-final.
