Federer, Nadal, Djokovic headline Wimbledon quarterfinals

  • Serbia's Novak Djokovic returns against Russia's Karen Khachanov during their men's singles fourth round match on the seventh day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon southwest London on Jul

Rafael Nadal celebrates a point against Juan Martin Del Potro.

The great players find a way to win even when they are not playing their best but for once Federer could not do it. I gave it my all.

"He is going to deserve all of the plaudits that he receives".

Djokovic has played twice on the 11,000-capacity Court One this year but was shunted off to the 4,000-seater Court Two for his second round clash against Horacio Zeballos.

The men's singles quarter-finals get underway at 13:00 BST on Centre Court and Court No. 1.
.

The Latvian player also reached the quarterfinals past year in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

On Monday, he nearly fell victim to the scheduling curse again.

Anderson said after the match that although he was nearly down and out, he knew that he had to keep trying to get back into the match. "I couldn't really get the rallies going the way I wanted to, especially the 1-2 punch wasn't working at all today".

Bizarrely, organisers chose to put a mixed doubles match on Centre Court, which was concluded under the roof after sunset.

"I guess there are other factors that play in". Tendulkar praised Federer's "hand-eye co-ordination" and promised to "exchange notes on cricket and tennis after he wins his ninth Wimbledon title". This quarter-final will be a different tussle altogether.

Novak Djokovic beat Karen Khachanov and the fading light to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. He's always like a big war for me.

He won the third set to snap Federer's 34-set winning streak at Wimbledon and Federer was clearly shaken as Anderson dominated the fourth set to drag the 20-times Grand Slam champion into a decider.

Anderson is the first South African man to make the last four at Wimbledon since Kevin Curren in 1983. That matched his own record, set back back in 2006.

After that things became a little trickier, and Federer was in danger of losing a set when Mannarino had three break points in the eighth game of the third set.

"Yeah, of course, the goal is to come back here next year", said Federer, who has won three Grand Slams over the last two years.

The last of Nadal's five Wimbledon finals was in 2011 when he lost to Serbia's Novak Djokovic.

The final set lasted 90 minutes, and it was captivating stuff. But have you seen him play a classic cricketing shot?

"Facing Roger again will be something fantastic", said Nadal. "Maybe you should ask the questions over in Russian Federation, how they're going to feel about Wimbledon being played at the same time". "It's about being smart, no?"

Anderson, who won the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi in December, will face either Milos Raonic or John Isner for a place in Sunday's final.
