Nadal, Djokovic set up Wimbledon semi-final dual

Nadal, Djokovic set up Wimbledon semi-final dual

The victor between Kevin Anderson and John Isner will go second on the Open era list for most attempts before reaching the Wimbledon final behind Marin Cilic, who set the record previous year after reaching the final on his 11th Wimbledon appearance.

A year after the epic encounter between Nadal and Djokovic at the semifinal stage of Roland Garros, they took on each other in the final in 2014.

A deft lob helped Nadal take the first game of the second set, before each player held serve.

"I'm really not thinking about being an underdog or being a favourite", he said.

Having crashed out in the first round at Wimbledon for five consecutive times, Goerges' emotions spilled over at the end of the match after she embraced Bertens at the net.

Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting.

Isner had never got past the third round at Wimbledon before this year while a run to the last-eight at the 2011 US Open had been his previous best at the majors.

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.

None of his opening four opponents were ranked inside the world top 50, meaning he faced a huge jump in class against world number four Juan Martin del Potro in Wednesday's semi-final.

"Roger for the first time for me since he came back 18 months ago looked his age", McEnroe said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Nadal nearly took out an elderly lady before kissing her on the hand as he collected himself among the fans, much to the crowd's delight.

One such chase left Nadal toppling into the arms of a stunned woman sitting in the front row as he failed to put on the breaks as he dashed after a Del Potro smash.

But the 31-year-old has been rejuvenated at Wimbledon, sweeping into the semi-finals for the eighth time. But I'm glad with my tournament.

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.

"But my goal is to try to play very well".

"With how I'm feeling physically and mentally, I'm in a very good spot".

When the 4 hours, 48 minutes of diving across the grass and leaping into the stands, of slipping and sliding, of so many moments of great tension - and, above all, great tennis - were done, when Rafael Nadal had sealed his Wimbledon quarterfinal victory, the man he edged, Juan Martin del Potro, was face-down at a Centre Court baseline.
