Federers's 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 destruction of Youzhny was the 3rd most lopsided Wimbledon quarterfinal ever.

Federer has lost 10 games or fewer in 7 Grand Slam quarterfinals.

2005 U.S. Open - 7
2008 Wimbledon - 10
2009 Australian Open - 3
2011 Australian Open - 7
2011 U.S. Open - 10
2012 Australian Open - 9
2012 Wimbledon - 5

What is remarkable is that he he has been so dominant in quarterfinals in the last year and half compared to the rest of his career. It is also amazing that he has only won 1 of 6 grand slams when he has achieved this.

The Wimbledon term is 'over-talking' and it can be irritating.

The BBC was forced to apologise after many viewers complained about "over-talking" by its commentary team during the TV coverage of the event in 2011. It said in a statement that views on commentary were subjective but that they "do appreciate that over-talking can irritate our audience". The BBC added that it hoped it had achieved "the right balance" across its coverage and was "of course sorry if on occasion you have not been satisfied". Tim Henman and John McEnroe were among the ex-players commentating.[36]
