  • Order of Play Day 9 Federer Nadal Djokovic in quarter-final action

Federer squandered a match point and let slip a two-set lead for only the fifth time in his 20-year career as big-serving South African Kevin Anderson notched a famous 2-6 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 6-4 13-11 quarter-final triumph over the eight-times champion.

Here's all the latest news and results!

Rafael Nadal has a bit of that on his side, with the world No.1 the sole player from the top seven in the men's rankings to reach the semi-finals.

Shattered, and defeated, having had victory in his grasp, the 29-year-old Argentinean collapsed to the ground, only for Nadal, to cross the net and go comfort the man he first played 11 years ago. A great quality of tennis, especially in the last set, some wonderful points, .

"Wow, it's pretty fantastic", Goerges said.

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

Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting. It's never easy playing a friend.

The second semi-final will see Nadal line up against former world number one and three-time Wimbledon champ Novak Djokovic. "But every match starts from zero". He saved another break point to inch closer to the semi-final, but just couldn't put Del Potroaway during a terrific and gruelling fifth set.

On Wednesday, we saw Nadal's confidence, and even his intensity, briefly wane when Juan Martin del Potro forced his way into their quarterfinal late in the second set.

"The last set had a little bit of everything, great points, great rallies, he was hitting insane with his forehands".

When he finally prevailed after four hours and 48 minutes, Nadal - and del Potro - received a rousing standing ovation from the packed crowd including another living legend left-hander Rod Laver in the Royal Box.

Del Potro raised his game again, though, claiming his third tie-break success of the match to book his date with Nadal.

Del Potro trailed 1-3 but at 5-5 he fired down an ace to reach match point number five and this time Simon cracked, netting a backhand to the relief of the Argentine who roared his approval, happy to conserve energy before taking on Nadal.

Rafael Nadal will face Novak Djokovic in a mouthwatering Wimbledon semifinal after beating Juan Martin del Potro in a Centre Court classic Wednesday.

"I will try to hold my service games most of the time". Sometimes you play your best tennis and it's not enough to beat him.
