The six-time champion had at one point looked like he was set to suffer a shock Wimbledon exit, just 24 hours after two-time champion Rafael Nadal crashed out of the tournament on Thursday night.

But Federer eventually won a hard-fought tie 4-6 6-7 6-2 7-6 6-1 to progress to the fourth round at the All-England Club.

"It was brutal," admitted the Swiss afterwards.

"I tried just to stay alive - in the fourth it was so close. Julien was playing amazingly.

"When you're down two sets to love you have to stay calm, but it's hard because people are freaking out."

Federer will now play Belgian Xavier Malisse on Monday for a place in the quarter-finals.
