Three-time champion Djokovic was the first man through to the semi-finals, reaching the last four of a major in more than two years by seeing off Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 on Centre Court.

"I think it was great quality tennis and in the final set there were some fantastic points", said Nadal who was a 7-5 6-7 4-6 6-4 6-4 victor.

Djokovic and Nishikori will play the first match on Centre Court, followed by arguably the pick of the quarter-finals between Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro, meaning Federer must make a rare visit to Court One.

"I think it's not fair, but it is the way it is in the midst of the emotions of a match".

Khachanov overcame more misfortune as he held to level the third set at 2-2 despite Djokovic twice receiving the help of a net cord, but he could not survive more pressure two games later, scooping a backhand long to put his opponent on the brink.

"I am peaking at the right moment".

Serbia´s Novak Djokovic serves to Japan´s Kei Nishikori during their men´s singles quarter-finals match on the ninth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Forced to fight back from 15-40 down, Djokovic saved a set point and showed a quick pair of hands to swap onto his forehand from left court and fire across Nishikori and into the last four of the competition.

"You think I ruined the court for just throwing my racket (down)?"

After racing through the first set, Djokovic was handed his first code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct after bouncing his racquet into the grass in frustration at squandering three break points in the third game of the second set. It's a big chance for me to face Rafa.

After two years of physical and mental struggles, Djokovic appears fit and confident and ready to try to add to his tally of 12 grand slam titles. "I knew how I threw the racquet", Djokovic later explained.

Djokovic missed the second half of 2017 with an elbow injury, but his run at Wimbledon is the latest indicator that the 12-time Grand Slam champion is nearing his best form.

Scheduled last on No. 1 Court, Djokovic and Khachanov did not get underway until after 19:00 local time at the All England Club on Monday. I'm going to play semifinals back there again.
