Wimbledon could detract from cup final, jokes Roger Federer

Federer was completely out of sorts by now and his uncharacteristic struggles on his forehand didn't improve in the fourth set.

Federer fell to 266-3 in career Grand Slam matches where he won the first two sets.

Eighth seed Anderson will play 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic or American ninth seed John Isner on Friday for a place in Sunday's final.

And his great rival Federer, despite the fact he will be 37 when the next Wimbledon comes around, allayed any fears that he might hang up his racket sooner rather than later.

Hard-serving Kevin Anderson, having lost the first two sets, fought off a match point and came storming back to stun top seeded Roger Federer on Wednesday to advance to the semifinals at Wimbledon. South Africa's Kevin Andersonreacts during his quarter final match against Switzerland's Roger Federer.

That will be played at Centre Court, of course, a spot Federer knows well. More than two hours after that match point, Federer and Anderson battled and battled.

Six times Anderson was required to hold serve to stay alive and each time he was equal to the task.

With the scores deadlocked at 11-11 in the final set, and no obvious break in serve forthcoming, Anderson profited as Federer started to show signs of strain.

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

Djokovic secured that game with a forehand victor, then saved two game points on Nishikori's serve before converting his first match point with a forehand down the line.

"But, sure, I was also surprised it was that fast, that first set, especially 16 minutes".

Djokovic saved three break points in the fifth game of the third and made the Japanese star pay by breaking for 4-2 and an eventual two sets to one lead. "If you go out there with doubts or unsure what's going to happen, like I maybe did a little bit in that first set, it's not going to go your way".

He's been flashing some anger this fortnight and did so again in the second set, bouncing his racket off the turf after failing to capitalize on three break points at 1-all.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion appeared to be moving towards his fifth successive Wimbledon semi-final after taking the opening two sets.

Meanwhile, Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski is heading to the semifinals in women's doubles.

Djokovic overcame a series of rows with the chair umpire to record a 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 victory over Japan's former US Open finalist. The final score: 6-2, 7-6 (5), 5-7, 4-6, 13-11 in 4 hours, 14 minutes.

Dabrowski and Xu will face No. 12 seeds Nicole Melichar of the USA and Kveta Peschke of the Czech Republic in the semifinals.
