Wimbledon 2018: Rafael Nadal in stands, Novak Djokovic incensed during wins

Roger Federer

Rafa Nadal now meets another old foe, Novak Djokovic, in the semi-final tomorrow.

He reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2013, but four wrist surgeries - three on the left - nearly made him retire.

"It´s not good for me". If the Argentine is to make it back-to-back last four appearances, he will need to reverse that result on Wednesday.

"I will try to hold my service games most of the time".

"I'm very, very happy to be in this position right now", said the ninth seed, who has never played on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

Given the fact he withdrew from a pre-Wimbledon event with a groin concern and called the trainer during his match with Simon, Del Potro's fitness could be a factor.

An Anderson win looked anything but likely after Federer, once again looking imperious, extended his record streak of sets won at Wimbledon to an equal-career-best 34 straight to charge to a two-sets-to-love lead in little more than an hour.

For Del Potro, who dived, tumbled and slipped as he tried to contain the two-time Wimbledon champion it was an 11th defeat in 16 meetings with the Spaniard.

He reached a first Wimbledon semi-final by beating eight-time champion Roger Federer on Wednesday, fighting back from two sets down to earn the biggest win of his career.

The Emmys ceremony airs September 17 on NBC with Colin Jost and Michael Che of " Saturday Night Live " as hosts. The 2018 Primetime Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday, July 12 at 11:30 a.m.

It is timed for release as the anticipation crests with Roger as returning champion, 10 years after their famed 2008 Wimbledon championship - an epic match so close and so reflective of their competitive balance that, in the end, the true victor was the sport itself.

However, both men have grown into the tournament while Federer crashed out to big-serving South African Kevin Anderson.

Stretching back to past year, Federer has won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon and will break his previous longest streak of 34 if he wins in straight sets.

Isner, 33, will be playing in his first major semi-final and is bidding to become the first American man to reach a Slam final since Andy Roddick finished Wimbledon runner-up in 2009.

Both players said the match is likely to come down to a few crucial points, but took different tones when asked to suggest where they might have an advantage.

The mental strength, arguably the characteristic that propelled him to world No 1 for the first time in 2011 and kept him at the top of the game for five years is back.

Isner's retort: "I'm taller than him".

"But also putting myself in these positions where hopefully I'm able to get another step forward and be playing on Sunday".
