Anderson's four victories to date have taken 10 hours and 11 minutes, while Federer has required only six hours and eight minutes to sail into the quarter-finals.

Anderson will play 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic of Canada or American ninth seed John Isner tomorrow for a place in Sunday's final.

"Down 2-0 I tried my best to keep fighting and was able to scrape through and by the end I thought I did a great job".

"It was quite a odd feeling for me not to be able to deliver my game that I know I possess, that I know I've been delivering for so many years", Djokovic said ahead of Wednesday's quarter-finals.

"I kept telling myself to keep believing". You need that mindset against Roger. "Matches likes that are very special".

Djokovic is a 12-time major champion who's been in something of a rut, due to right elbow troubles that lasted more than a year until he finally had surgery in February.

Stuart Broad versus Roger Federer - tennis versus cricket.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson pulled off the upset of Wimbledon on Wednesday with a stunning rally to beat Roger Federer and advance to the semifinals.

But after failing to convert a match point in the third set, Federer allowed a rash of errors to creep into his game, particularly on the forehand side.

The South African dug deep after warding off match-point and broke the Swiss in the 11th game of the third set before closing out with an ace in the 12th.

Anderson, on the other hand, snatched victory from the jaws of Federer, thanks to his powerful returns and never-say-die spirit.

The 32-year-old made his maiden Grand Slam final appearance as last year's US Open, losing to Rafael Nadal.

Nishikori, playing in his first quarterfinal at the All England Club, was bidding to become the first Japanese man to make the Wimbledon semifinals in 85 years.

The first set between Federer and Mannarino was so one-sided that, when Mannarino trailed 0-40 in the opening game of the second, the normally pro-Federer Centre Court crowd began to cheer loudly for his opponent. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set 6-4.

But Anderson was just getting started.

Kevin played better and better as the match progressed, stealing Roger's serve in the seventh game of the fourth set, saving a break point in game 10 to close the set and level the score at 2-2.

Unsurprisingly, Anderson says his win over Federer will be one he cherishes for a long time.

Anderson continued to grow in confidence and stature as the match wore on, holding his nerve to earn his first win over Federer in five attempts.

Novak Djokovic accused a Spanish match official of "double standards".

A Federer double fault at 11-11 in the fifth opened up the door to the lone break of the decider and Anderson closed it out with a massive serve to reach a first Wimbledon semifinal.
