Defending champion Federer crashes out of Wimbledon
GETTYRoger Federer Rafael Nadal has admitted he does not want a Wimbledon final showdown

"Beating Roger Federer here at Wimbledon will be one I remember, especially in such a close match", Anderson said. Disturbed by noises from the crowd, and a plane flying overhead, with the first break of the 5th set, Anderson made no mistake with his service game. Still, the 20-time major champion was leading by two sets and 5-4 in the third when, with Anderson serving, he got to Ad-Out.
The fifth and final set was every bit as dramatic as it should've been.
"So if I would have won in straight sets, then it could have been all right, because I would have had a great first set, and second set was whatever it was".
"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".
Nadal and Djokovic will be the semi-final with the most attention, but Isner's match with Anderson could be an instant classic, based on the way the former sauntered into the last four. "I wouldn't necessarily say I've been playing incredible, I've been playing well".
Djokovic will need all that belief, however, as he has not faced anything yet at Wimbledon of the level of Nadal. "But I have been there before, I knew what energy I needed to bring into the fifth set", the Swiss said, "But it can happen, against a player like him who serves so big".
Now the 32-year-old is the first African player to reach the last four of Wimbledon for more than 50 years, his run has resonated around the world.
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.
For the only the second time at Wimbledon, Federer was beaten after holding a two-set lead, with his previous loss from that position coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarterfinals.
"Over 3 hours these two men gave their all to stay alive". Federer, an eight-time Wimbledon champion, had not lost a set here since his five-set defeat to Milos Raonic in a 2016 semifinal. "I really do. I think with the performances I've had, I deserve to be in the semi-finals", Djokovic, whose last major title came at the 2016 French Open, said.
At the other end of the turf was eight-time champion Roger Federer, who had led by two-sets-to-love and even had a match point in the third set of the last-eight tango.
An accurate summation of what went wrong was given by Federer himself who - by the accounts of the media people present - came to the press conference soon after the five-set marathon.
Only once before had Federer played more games at a Grand Slam and on that occasion, he prevailed 16-14 in the 2009 Wimbledon final against Andy Roddick. I had my chances and blew them.
And Federer, 36, insisted losing will only motivate him to return to Wimbledon again next year. It set Federer off - he remained heated by the overturn ("That one cost me the match, eventually", Federer said later) and he began jawing at the chair umpire to complain about a number of things, including how long Del Potro was taking to challenge.
"I have already gotten tons of messages from support back home", Anderson said.
