Well Mardy, get used to it, you're all we've got right now and for the near future.
As for Berdych--
Fish, for reaching the quarters, will have the unenviable task of facing the defending champion and World No. 1 Rafael Nadal next. Is Fish the guy to stop the unstoppable Rafa?
Rafa hasn't lost a match at Wimbledon since losing the 2007 Final to Roger Federer. He won the title in 2008 and 2010 and was absent from the tournament in 2009 due to injuries.
For del Potro, he is making progress with every Grand Slam he plays in his comeback from right wrist surgery. He made it to the second round at the Australian Open, then followed it up with a third round appearance at the French Open and now a fourth round appearance at Wimbledon.
As for the rest--
The usual suspects are still alive. World No. 2 Novak Djokovic is in the quarters, World No. 3 Roger Federer is in the quarters and World No. 4 Andy Murray is also in the quarters.

So the quarterfinals look like this--
No. 1 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 10 Mardy Fish (only American left)
No. 2 Novak Djokovic vs. Bernard Tomic (18-year old qualifier)
No. 3 Roger Federer vs. No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (No. 7 David Ferrer destroyer)
No. 4 Andy Murray vs. Feliciano Lopez (No. 8 Andy Roddick destroyer)
