Her loss marks the first time in the Open era that any major has featured a quarterfinal round without a top-10 seed on either the men's or women's side, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Goerges will face seven-time champion Serena Williams in the semi-finals on Thursday.
Federer needed just 16 minutes to win the first set and the Swiss never looked back.
Since returning to tennis to reclaim her place at the top of the rankings following giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian in September, Serena Williams has been honest about the struggle it's been to balance work and motherhood.
Drake has been pictured cheering on his ex-girlfriend Serena Williams as she made it through to the Wimbledon semi-finals.
Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time. No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals.
Hungry as ever, Serena Williams expressed huge relief after surviving her first scare of the tournament to remain firmly on track for an eighth Wimbledon women's singles crown - and first as a mother.
She is first on Centre Court against Daria Kasatkina for her quarter-final clash this afternoon.
Next up for Williams as she tries to earn her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall will be a match Thursday against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victor against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.
Goerges had suffered five successive opening round defeats at the All England Club before this year.
"This is only my fourth tournament back so I don't feel pressure, I don't feel I have to win this".
The victor of the Williams and Giorgi match battles Bertens or Goerges in the semifinals. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".
Giorgi was excellent off both wings in the opener and won her first set in four meetings with Williams as a brilliant backhand gave her two set points and an errant forehand followed from the American. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets.
Del Potro will face two-time champion Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
