In a match suspended from Monday night due to darkness with the Argentine star two sets to one ahead, Del Potro sealed victory on a fifth match point after nearly four and a half hours of action on Court Two.

"I felt good. Sure it is disappointing losing the next two sets after winning the first two and having match point but I've been there and I know what kind of energy I need to bring in the fifth and I was able to bring that".

Juan Martin del Potro set up a Wimbledon quarter-final clash against Rafael Nadal when he downed Gilles Simon of France 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 7-6 (7/5) on Tuesday.

"It will be a different match that we played in Paris a few weeks ago", Del Potro told reporters. I tried to resist and maintain focus.

The world number one, playing in his first All England Club quarter-final since finishing runner-up to Djokovic in 2011, then wasted four set points in the second. "If I want to beat him, I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands".

Rafael Nadal avoided joining Roger Federer in a shock Wimbledon exit as he booked a glamorous semi-final clash with old foe Novak Djokovic.

He looked flat as he was broken to trail 1-3 but he clawed his way back to lead 5-4 with his serve to come.

Del Potro raised his game again, though, claiming his third tie-break success of the match to book his date with Nadal.

Simon saved a fourth match point when he threw the kitchen sink at a forehand return and he eventually took his fourth break point to level at 5-5.

The action continued to roll in on the Del Potro serve and it was Nadal's turn to slip flat onto his back but he picked himself up and rasped a backhand victor to snatch the crucial break.

"After nearly five hours match, I fell down".
