Roger Federer stunned by Kevin Anderson in five-set Wimbledon thriller

Roger Federer sweeps into the last-eight

"Federer departs Wimbledon at the quarter-final stage and in the slightly odd surroundings of the No 1 court".

Kevin Anderson has eliminated defending champion Roger Federer from Wimbledon, scrambling back from a two-set deficit to win a marathon match, 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11.

It was Federer's earliest departure from Wimbledon since his shock second round defeat against Sergiy Stakhovsky in 2013.

Anderson will take on the victor of the quarter-final clash between former Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic and ninth-ranked John Isner.

"Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting".

Federer came into the match having won 32 straight sets while not dropping a service game since last year's Wimbledon. "I just kept telling myself this will be my day". Watch Roger Referer vs Kevin Anderson live streaming online on ESPN TV this morning at 8 am EST / 5 am PST with a spot in the semifinals at stake. That's the mindset you need against someone like Roger. "I just gave it my all and I'm ecstatic to get through that". "Matches likes that are very special".

Kevin Anderson, who played at the University of IL, knocked defending champion Roger Federer out of Wimbledon Wednesday.

Novak Djokovic shrugged off a second-set slump to reach a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time since 2016 by beating Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday.

Toni Nadal again heaped praise on Roger Federer and his nephew Rafael Nadal for their achievements and contributions to the game of tennis over the last two decades.

The only other times he has surrendered a two-set lead came against Lleyton Hewitt in Switzerland's 2003 Davis Cup semi-final loss to Australia in Melbourne, to David Nalbandian in the 2005 Masters Cup decider.

Djokovic is a 12-time major champion who's been in something of a rut, due to right elbow troubles that lasted more than a year until he finally had surgery in February.

Federer didn't seemed bothered by being away from Centre Court when he cruised through the first set in just 26 minutes.

On Sunday, spectators were given a thrill when Nadal, Federer and Novak Djokovic all practiced side-by-side at the same time.

In the last eight tomorrow, Federer will face eighth seed Kevin Anderson, one of a number of players enjoying a career-best Wimbledon after a 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/2), 5-7, 7-6 (7/4) victory over Gael Monfils.

Federer was completely out of sorts by now and his uncharacteristic struggles on his forehand didn't improve in the fourth set. But Anderson held his nerve to level up and then produced a remarkable surge in form to take Federer deep into the fifth set.
