Anderson stuns Federer in quarter-final cliffhanger

Soon enough, Djokovic was on his way to the semi-finals, where he will meet Rafael Nadal.

Federer wasted a match point during the 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11, match.

With fifth-set tiebreakers not permitted at Wimbledon, they played on - each point heavy with implications. We thought he could lose to maybe somebody else, but not necessarily Anderson, who hasn't had huge success coming into this tournament.

Anderson had failed to take a single set off Federer in their previous four meetings.

"Obviously I'm very ecstatic to get through that match", 32-year-old Anderson said.

From Wimbledon and ICC, it has now moved over to Roger Federer and Sachin Tendulkar as the two legends discussed helping each other out with their trademark shots on the tennis court and cricket field respectively. It's one of those average days you have to try to win the match, and I just couldn't get it done today.

But Anderson is playing the best tennis of his career, having reached the final at Flushing Meadows last September and then a career-high ranking of No.7 in May.

Kevin Anderson (8) narrowly defeated Gael Monfis in four sets to reach the quarterfinals. Del Potro had opportunities in both to break Nadal's serve, and both went on for over nine minutes, but Nadal persevered to stave Martin del Potro off from tying the set.

They remained on serve early in the fifth set, as the match passed the three-hour mark. Nadal will advance to play in his sixth Wimbledon semifinal, and his first since losing in the finals in 2011.

The final last-eight clash is unlikely to feature too many rallies, with John Isner taking on Milos Raonic. However, he fell once, this time in a 7-6 tiebreaker, to fall behind two sets to none. We are talking about me being in the quarter-finals.

And, despite his two-set advantage, the 20-times grand slam victor never looked entirely comfortable, despite having never previously lost a set to Anderson in four other meetings.

But his run at Wimbledon might have come as a surprise even to Anderson, who had never made it past the fourth round prior to this year and lost in the first round of the grass-court event at Queen's Club last month.

"Rafa [Nadal] and Roger played all four matches on Centre, myself only one".

Djokovic has improved in every tournament in 2018, making it to the fourth round of the Australian Open, the quarterfinal round of the French Open and now the semifinal round at Wimbledon.

This feat follows Anderson's 2015 battle with Novak Djokovic, where he took the Serb to five sets in the Wimbledon round of 16 in 2015.

Novak Djokovic's clash against Kei Nishikori went more to script and saw the Serb advance to his first Grand Slam semi-final in nearly two years following a confident 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win. Since then, it has been a long rehabilitation process.
