"Congratulations to Kevin Anderson for reaching the men's singles semi-finals", Ramaphosa tweeted on Thursday.

In charge at a set up, Rafael Nadal took his seat at the change of ends during his second set, when gasps were let out by the Centre Court crowd.

In yesterday's quarter-final match-ups, both players had very different matches.

Playing Djokovic was the sternest test and he came through a dramatic five-setter dubbed the greatest clay-court match of all-time by Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. "I think I can keep doing damage here". I'm really happy for you. I went to the net.

"Wow, it's pretty unbelievable", Goerges said. "I've only lost one match", said Nadal.

I know in the semi-finals of Wimbledon you will not have an easy opponent. "But every match starts from zero".

After Nadal squandered four set points in the third set tiebreak, with a double fault on one of them, Del Potro made him pay as he pounced on his first chance to raise the prospect of another astonishing upset on day nine of the championships.

Only problem was that on Wednesday nobody was rushing out to roll out the green carpet and hand over the trophy as the Spaniard's 7-5 6-7 (7) 4-6 6-4 6-4 victory over Juan Martin del Potro had merely secured him a semi-final with Novak Djokovic.

"The last set had a little bit of everything, great points, great rallies, he was hitting insane with his forehands".

A match which has gone down in the record books as the longest Grand Slam final, lasting five hours and 53 minutes - and finishing at 1.37am - before Djokovic prevailed.

Del Potro fought back, but Nadal held again after the former wasted a break point.

The unforgiving match had sent Del Potro tumbling to the grass on more than one occasion.

The Spaniard proved it with a daring chase-down attempt during his win over Juan Martin del Potro overnight, climbing into the stands after trying to reach a ball.

"I was close to beating him and I couldn´t because Rafa always has a little bit more than the rest of the players on tour".

Isner leads their head to head 8-3, and he has won their last five meetings; the last time Anderson turned the tables against his fellow flamethrower was in 2012.

The pair have only met twice at Wimbledon, Nadal winning their 2007 semi-final when Djokovic retired hurt, the Serb gaining revenge in the 2011 final.
