Novak Djokovic holds overnight advantage against Rafael Nadal in Wimbledon semi-finals

  • Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon

On what turned out to be the longest-ever semi-final day at Wimbledon, Anderson still had no idea who he would play in Sunday's final as Djokovic led Nadal by two sets to one when play was halted at 11.02pm on a floodlit Centre Court.

The tournament referee informs Nadal the match is over. At stake is a place in Sunday's men's final against the man who was partly at fault for keeping Nadal and Djokovic out there so late.

He was made to wait an hour and 18 minutes longer for his wish to finally come true.

Standing in his way is the considerable obstacle of the 12-time grand slam champion Djokovic, who has looked rejuvenated this fortnight after a hard couple of years.

(For more sports coverage, visit the ABS-CBN Sports website). That's wildly impressive. Believe me, I know she wants to go out there and win.

I really hope this a sign for grand slams to change this format.

But the other three Grand Slam tournaments all play on until one player wins by two games. Each man also took a turn shouting toward the crowd after capturing a set, and Isner waved a hand toward the crowd during the third-set tiebreaker to generate more cheering. Having reached the US Open final previous year, Anderson will also be one-up on Isner in the big-stage experience department. This was to be his last Grand Slam until 2017.

Anderson defeated eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in a 13-11 fifth set in the quarterfinals Wednesday.

Madison often accompanies Isner on his extensive travels and Wimbledon is no exception - a very pregnant (and always stylish) Madison has been seen cheering him on from the stands at the All England Club.

In a battle of the big-servers, eighth seed Kevin Anderson takes on ninth seed John Isner with both men looking to reach their first Wimbledon final.

The pressure continued to mount on the world No. 1 as Djokovic created another break point opportunity, with his Spanish opponent punching the air with glee after denying the Serb. This was the first Wimbledon semi-final with a tie break in the opening three sets and the best was yet to come!

It is the third-longest match in tennis history, falling short of the 11 hours and five minutes that it took for Isner to beat France's Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set in their first-round match at Wimbledon in 2010.

Their clash, however, may not be easy on the eye. The record, funnily enough, was set by Isner.

"He's someone that pushes me, I think".

"The effort they both put in and the performance and the guts, the way they competed - a lot to be proud of", said Justin Gimelstob, one of Isner's coaches.

Anderson began his Wimbledon with a 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory over qualifier Norbert Gombos before beating Andreas Seppi 6-3 6-7 6-3 6-4.
